This is a nice museum with a variety of exhibits. The Civil was photos are interesting as well as the train set up! Kids of all ages enjoy the trains. There are old radios, portraits, sculptures, and paper art. Nice gift shop!

Nice stop and interesting but beware of the "post cards" they sell because some of them are really not post cards but advertisement with no place to put an address or stamp.

Not worth hunting for parking. This is a place that is only good when the trains run. The kids section is laughable and dingy. If we didn’t have a BOGO I’d want my $ back.

This great little museum was well worth the small entrance fee. We learned a lot about the history of Charleston from friendly museum staff. Highly recommend. Tour about 1 hour.

I understand the frustration that some reviewers expressed regarding the effective use of space and currency of certain exhibits. However, there are outstanding exhibits.
