This was more than I expected. The tour was a human connection to the a past. Our guide, Gail, was terrific. We left feeling we had shared something very special; a memory of brutally hard work, and a tightly knit community of goodwill and respect.

I was hoping for more of an overall museum on Gullah culture, but was pleasantly surprised to learn about a close knit community of our recent past. The facilities are great and well maintained. Be prepared- Clarence Thomas is a local hero

We discussed the realities of life on the water and how near impossible it is for us to understand how challenging the lifestyle of the gullah people was like. Standing for hours shucking oysters to be paid $1 / gallon is a rough life. We...More

This is a fascinating and somewhat interactive museum about the lives and work of freed blacks who harvested oysters and crabs in this remote community of Pin Point. It included a very well produced video, and a guided tour by a descendent and resident of...More

If you want to learn about a very unique and valuable part of American history, come here. The staff are wonderful, the small exhibits are well put together (including a great documentary), and the "unique factor" is high. The museum is about the Gullah-Geeche nation,...More

Probably 90 minutes to 2 hours. The orientation film is 40 minutes long, and a guided tour takes about half an hour. You can also do a self-guided tour of the museum.
