The loveliest and most warm and inviting museum I have ever been to! The cultural history is rich and interesting, and the people that remain in the community feel like old family members. I have lived in Savannah for 3 years and only recently discovered this beautiful community so I decided to take a solo trip to the museum to... More

After reading the great reviews here on Trip Advisor, we added Pin Point to our Savannah itinerary, and we are so glad we did! After traveling from the Atlanta airport, we did not arrive until about 3:45 and were worried that we might not have time to see everything. We were greeted by Gail & Hanif who assured us that...

Ms. Gail was very engaging and passionate about the history and culture. It is only open on Thursdays and Saturday so plan ahead! We missed the entrance so we drove back into the community. Asked someone and they pointed it out. Our google map showed it further back in the development, but it is right after you turn in off... More

From its humble beginnings as a group of slaves from Africa to a Supreme Court Justice of the United States. Indicative of how great our Country is! Excellent tour guides and immaculate facilities

Whenever we travel we are always on the lookout for regional historical centers. The Pin Point Heritage Museum is an exceptional example of this. The amount of information we learned about the Gullah/Geechee culture in a few hours was simply amazing. Our guide was Hanif Haynes who grew up on Pin Point. He did a great job of explaining life...

This is a very informative tour. Our guide actually grew up in the community and was extremely knowledgeable. She was fun and friendly. She sang for us, spoke to us in her language and shared personal stories. We did not want to leave.

Gail Smith guided us through the facility and told us of her personal experiences since she was born and raised at Pin Point. A beautiful location on the Moon River with endless marshes. The museum was the site of an oyster and crab processing plant where the freed slaves worked, lived and socialized. They created their own language which can... More

Thank you for visiting our museum. We are very proud of the history of Pin Point. To have a living cultural legacy is golden. Justice Clarence Thomas is from Pin Point. However First Lady Michelle Obama does not have roots in Pin Point. We would we be proud to say it if she did! :) Take Care, Tania Smith-Jones Site... More

This museum is off the tourist route, along the Moon river, all alone. Lovely. Our guide, Gail, was great. Very knowledgeable, well spoken -- she is from the town of Pin Point. We felt no sense of "hurry up" as we asked question after question. Each member of the staff was welcoming. This is a chance to learn about a... More

If you're interested in Gullah/Geechee heritage and culture then definitely stop into the Pin Point Museum just off the Diamond Causeway (spur 204) south of Savannah. I spent an hour there on August 28, 2014 and was immediately impressed with staff member Gail Smith. I peppered her with questions throughout my visit and even got a photo with her! The... More
