Looking for something to do on a windy cold November day; this museum was nice to spend an hour or two in. My 15 month old like what he saw and was spacious enough for him to walk around.

If you really want to learn the history of Savannah, this is the place to visit. However, I did not give myself enough time to truly appreciate the historical facts located within this museum. Please give yourself at least 2 or more hours to truly enjoy the displays, This is a small museum, but truly worth your time.

Located next to the Visitor Center, it has a variety of displays and artifacts that are quite interesting. A good deal of information about the Girl Scouts is provided and there was also a section covering quilting and weaving in the south. Not huge but worth the time.

This museum is located in the same building as the visitor center and there is paid parking on the lot adjacent to the building for about a dollar an hour. You can purchase a See 3 Pass for $17 and see 3 out of 4 attractions listed on the pass. Since one option was the Savannah Children's Museum, we chose... More

We stopped here and bought a combo ticket for the other museums also. It's not a huge elaborate museum but it was interesting non the less. Lot of girl scout history I noticed.

We loved the museum! My boys played "I spy" finding museum clues. It was long enough and intriguing, but not boring for children. They got to dress up and play along as we strolled through the museum.

This small museum was a nice introduction to Savannah history although the Forest Gump display gave much question to the authenticity of the displays. Since the suitcase displayed was definitely not the one used in the movie (look at the photo displayed and you can see the difference) was that even the same bench? Overall we enjoyed the museum for... More

The museum was much smaller than I was expecting but still was very nice to tour. There were many displays which caught my children's attention and brought about many good conversations with them. For the price I think it was a great place to visit.

Informative displays, staff was great, friendly. The young lady was courteous upon entry and exit. The gift shop was very nice. I likes the quilt display the best. The Girl Scout display was very super.
