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

We started our museum tours with this little museum near historic Savannah. Let me say that we go to a lot of museums....we love museums...So saying a museum is just OK is somewhat difficult for me...but I like to give my honest personal opinions when I make a review...This is a very small museum that has a limited number of...

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.

The Savannah history museum is a terrific place to start a first visit to Savannah, GA. It is not a huge museum, but it serves a purpose. Once you find it, there is ample parking and other attractions nearby. I would suggest purchasing tickets for several of the area museums while at the visitor center/history museum because of the discounted... More

Very disappointed in this museum. It's small, poorly organized, and more importantly... Barely touches on the 300 year history of Savannah. When purchasing tickets for the museum, you have the opportunity to purchase up to 3 from 5 different museum tickets. I would skip this museum. I was looking forward to this museum and was sorely disappointed.

My 13-year-old grandson and I visited the History Museum and Battlefield Park in July '14. We also visited Old Fort Jackson and the Railroad Museum, so it was a full day. We loved it. The Museum is not large, but has excellent, well-explained exhibits. The Revolutionary War presenter gave a full hour of information about the battle here; he took... More

This museum is full of great exhibits, the location is perfect, (right inside the visitor's center with free parking) and the price reasonable, especially if you get the "see 3 pass" which includes other great sites such as Old Fort Jackson and the Georgia State Railroad Museum. The presentation about the Revolutionary War battle that happened there was great for... More

Boring but informational. Would of liked to of seen more exhibits. We had a guy give us some info about the American Revolution and took us outside to fire a musket. The only exciting thing in the whole place.
