The Maritime Museum is on Front St. in Georgetown, easy to find and plenty of free parking. It is on two levels with many great displays of interesting information on various boats / ships associated with Georgetown and South Carolina and also hurricanes and other topics of interest. It is definitely worth a visit.

This place is great, packed full of information and interesting items to see. We stumbled upon it when it started raining, it was a wonderful find. It took around an hour to do it all.

Stopped in on our first trip to Georgetown and just wandering around the town. It's free but they do have a donation box. The entire thing is reading and looking at pictures, model ships and artifacts. The person at the front counter did a great job explaining what we would see and assuring us he would love to answer questions. He seemed very happy to be there and very knowledgeable about the Georgetown maritime history. Glad we stopped in. It takes about 30 minutes to see everything, could take longer if you read every single sign.

We ventured inside this maritime museum which has free admission. There is quite a bit of history displayed through ship models, exhibits, artifacts and photographs over two levels. I learned a great deal about Georgetown, which is exactly what I like to do when visiting an area for the first time. They also have a few items for sale and the associates are friendly and helpful.
