The museum is a bit rundown, likely due to the passing of the current owner/curator's wife, but has many fascinating artifacts and a great storyteller in Andrew, the curator. While meandering and a bit long winded, Andrew tells the tale of the Gullah people and...More

I was hoping to learn more about the Gullah culture, but we arrived in the middle of a storyteller rambling about his childhood. He did add some interesting information, but not really about the Gullah. The space is small and haphazardly organized.

Andrew the docent tells wonderful stories of the Gullah people and has a good variety of things to view.

The building is nondescript and the curation is so so, but there are some great pieces of art in this museum, especially the quilts. The real piece of art is the storyteller, Mr. Andrew. He has so much information of the early Gullah life on...More

There is no admission fee. The museum is quite small and he does ask for donations. The most interesting thing in the museum is the curator. Ask him questions about anything you see there or about the Gullah. There also... More
