Self-Guided Tour

This was a self-guided tour where you set your own pace and take your time to read everything this museum has to offer. The lighting could have been a little better.

I like museums so I pretty much go to all I come across. I wasn't disappointed here even though I found the lighting could have been a little better. The entrance fee is reasonable @ $7.50 and they are open until 5:30. I made this my last item for the day after getting off the tour bus at the Visitors... More

We rode our bikes over from the Double Tree on West Bay Street... A short enjoyable ride! Upon arriving, we heard a soldier playing a drum. Next thing we knew, we were part of a reenactment of a battle outside!! Amazing exhibits and the opportunity to be in a reenactment ... A one of a kind visit!!! Nice variety of... More

Entry fee higher than expected for the amout out time and displays available. Guided tour available who was very animated and played a wonder character park. We have two kids under five, would have rather spent our time at the train museum next door.

6 months ago we visited Savannah and I am still talking about this place! At the first trolley stop we toured the museum. It is a small museum with a few interesting pieces and we were ready to go to the next place when we heard the drum beating. We decided to stick around and follow the drummer as he... More

Located at the beginning of the Trolley Tours, this museum, is a little short on content, but the railway exhibition of rolling stock next door is great for rail enthusiast. Skip this if you are short on time in Savannah.

Loved the "living history" component of this museum. Aaron Bradford, our tour guide through the Revolutionary War, was outstanding! My 11-year-old granddaughter loved being able to carry the drum (and beat the battle rhythm), carry the flag across the battlefield, and interact with Aaron. The others in the group were laughing and we all had a great time. As a... More

For just $7, you get a very informative museum with lots of displays & artifacts from the 1700-1800s. A very good amount of info on the settling of Savannah, the period of the Revolution & Civil Wars, and also Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. I'd recommend stopping by for an informative couple of hours.

Having to pay to park got me going downhill, but cheered up as we got inside. It took us about 30 minutes to see what we wanted at $7 per person. Learned several new things so overall would recommend it for a short visit.

We had a really great time today at this museum! The most fun we have ever had at a museum! There is a tour that leads you through a reenactment of the battle for Savannah that you get to participate in! The guide was super nice and gave us a great history lesson. Dont miss it!
