This was a wonderful museum. There was no charge, but we were happy to give a donation. We went here because the children with us needed an educational experience since they were on vacation away from school. There were many many interesting things to look at and to read. There were two floors and it was spread out so that no area felt crowded. It was clean and the staff were kind and friendly. We were not local, but in my opinion, this museum is a MUST for anyone living in the area of Horry County. We would recommend it as a place to go for people who enjoy museums.

The museum/library complex has free parking (the museum is toward the right as you enter the parking lot). Admission is free --there is a donation box if you are so inclined. There is a fish tank just inside the entrance which contains local species of fish. The museum has many artifacts and story boards giving a fine history of the region including the natural science of the area. COVID-19: The employee was not wearing a mask but visitors were expected to be masked and maintain social distancing protocols.

Staying in Conway for 5 days have me planty of time to explore. I did the mieum on the last day and am glad i didn't miss it. I spent 2 hours going through the 2 floors. The museum is laid out in an old school building and each room has a theme. The museum covers conway and south carolina history. I tend to read all or alot of the signage so you can probably do it in less time. There was a lot of audio buttons you could press and hear info also. Best thing museum is free! Donations ate accepted
Well worth the time

While on a recent trip to South Carolina, we had a rainy day and were looking for something to do. We found the Horry County Museum website and decided to make that a "quick" stop on our way to do some shopping. All I can say is WOW, we spent almost three hours exploring the vast exhibits inside the museum. The history of the county and state of South Carolina are truly well displayed in this gem of a museum. The admission is free with a donation box at the entrance of the museum. I'm not sure children wold enjoy the main museum as much, but there is a living history farm connected with the museum that we did not visit. That area may be more enjoyable for children.

Rainy day activities are often costly, but a trip to this museum is free and full of interesting exhibits about the area history. The exhibits are well set up and cover a variety of topics. Along with the documentary about pirates in the 1700s, purchase of a jar of apple pie moonshine jelly from the gift shop and voting for the best quilt from the new display, we spent almost three enjoyable hours here.

Harry County Museum was recommended to us by the host at the visitor center. We had a fun time viewing the different exhibits at this quaint museum. They even had homemade quilts that we had an opportunity to vote on. They also have a huge fish tank in the front lobby built the the guys on the show “Tanked”.

My wife/I were visiting Conway and found this museum. The admission was free but contributions are appreciated.

What's so fascinating about this museum is that it's housed in the old Conway High School.

The exhibits are many and cross all walks of cultures. We were totally entertained by all of the exhibits that provided a close-up look on the history of Horrey County and it's communities.

This is a must see when visiting Conway, SC. We will return on our next visit.

Housed in historic Conway, the Horry County Museum is a wealth of information about the area.....a real tourist treasure for anyone tired of the beach, etc and is interested in the history of the area.

The Museum has a staff of volunteers and employees who are very knowledgeable about the area and it's history.. It offers films, lectures, and other activities for those j just visiting or for those of us who are blessed to live here...

Welcome to Horry County, SC y'all!

Enjoy....also a great rainy day activity. Be sure to visit the Gift Shop and sign the visitors register. PS: Conway offers a nice variety of restaurants for every taster and budget as well as a beautiful, walkable waterfront.

Wonderful local museum. Plenty of exhibits and they strive to make sure everything is local. Beautiful seasonal quilt exhibit. Even the building it resides in is historical. Definitely a must see

We were very surprised at the amount of things they had on display. Not only the history of Horry County and Conway but of the various wars as well as nature. They also have a small aquarium. Staff are very friendly.
