This is a very small space, and not necessarily what most would think of as a physical museum. But the information and experience come from the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez. They are a wealth of knowledge and readily available to share their information. I highly recommend this museum to anyone interested in the Gullah Geechee heritage!!!

The only reason this is terrible is that it is closed. I had visited before, it was a two room museum that was so interesting I could have stayed all day instead of the three hours I was there for. Very sad that it is closed, the Gullah culture is fascinating, I hope it reopens again in the future.

As of the beginning of March, the Gullah museum has lost its lease and is looking for a new location. The day that a friend and I went looking for it, this wasn't noted on the web site, but it sppears to be now. Stay tuned.

Anyone interested in real American history, African-diaspora/Black history or in learning about little known cultures should not miss this museum. What a special experience to speak with the historian who had such a wealth of knowledge on the subject of the Gullah culture and history! I went with my 9 yr. old son and the lecture part was a bit... More

This is a must stop on your trip to Myrtle Beach. I enjoyed the history and I was amazed with the quilts.

Learning about the history of the people where you are visiting is such an important aspect of travel. Andrew, was our narrator and historian. What an amazing story he told of his people. Artifacts, quilts, books and more. Remarkable.
