The museum was somewhat hidden behind the visitors center on MLK blvd. It is well worth visiting, as it gives you a feel of Savannah's history. And they even had the bench that Forrest Gump sat on. Chippewa Square is where it was filmed. If...More

The museum has a great Girl Scout display, much better than the GS 1st HQ, and you are allowed to take pictures. Joanne was a hoot to talk to, we loved her.

The museum has a timeline for you to understand de history of Savannah. It’s cool! Some cars, military uniforms, old quilts and others. They have a 15 minute movie that was very good!
