It is a good museum, but I do not feel it was worth $7 per adult, $3 per adult would be what I would think it is worth and then ask for donation at the end.. A lot of the... read more

The museum is well worth the $8. The highlight was the presentation of history through a period dressed guide named Charles. He explained the history of the Battle of Savannah during the Revolutionary War. He presented facts, mixed with small inserts of humor into the presentation making it fun. I bought the combo ticket and added the Railroad Museum (for... More

This museum is located inside an old train tressel building. From clothing and textiles to trains and boat building, this place kept both of us interested.

I really enjoyed the exhibit and the guided tour by a reenactor was fantastic! He made you feel like you were right there at the time of the battle. It was worth the time and money and was my favorite stop of the day.

Let me start by saying that the Museum content itself is fine - interesting and informative artifacts and text. However, as we were leaving we caught a presentation aimed at children by a man dressed as a Revolutionary War soldier. He held up a copy of the Declaration of Independence and told the kids there that the document says that... More

We really enjoyed the time spent at the Savannah History Museum. We arrived in time for the guided history lesson. The reenactor was very friendly and informative. The information he gave was detailed and interesting. The museum covers a lot of historical territory but primarily focuses on the Revolutionary War period and there is a memorial to this across the... More

The Savannah History Museum located on Martin Luther King Blvd. was a great stop on our trip. It is filled with historical things, including quilts, trains and depot, etc. we had a very interesting presentation of the Revolutionary War Battle of Savannah. There is also a continuous 16 minute movie about the founding of Savannah. A must see visit.

There is some Girl Scout info and photos you won't see anywhere else, but that's about the only unique part. Yep, the Civil War happened here and the uniforms looked the same as everywhere else. Nothing exciting, at least it was only $7

We happened to visit on Savannah's Free Museum Day, (so I can't honestly comment on the value for the entrance fee) and we had a fantastic experience and I would gladly pay to bring my family back again. The historic building itself is worth checking out, and while the museum is small there is a lot to explore and discover.... More

It is a good museum, but I do not feel it was worth $7 per adult, $3 per adult would be what I would think it is worth and then ask for donation at the end.. A lot of the exhibits are about Savanna. It does not take much time to go through it.

It's a small museum, at first we thought we would take 15 min tops to see everything but we ended catching enactment of the battle at Savannah and it was really great and totally worth the time, the enactment took about 45 min perhaps. It was also very interactive (we weren't aware of that at first) but it was fun... More
