Pat Conroy Literary Center Beaufort
Among the museums, shops, and restaurants, we found this gem, a literary center founded by this world-famous local author—Pat Conroy.
If you miss Pat Conroy, a great Southern writer with a huge heart, this lovely, little museum packed with mementos, greeted by very knowledgeable staff will help bring him back as best as they can.

Brookgreen Gardens Murrells Inlet
It offers virtually unending walking trails, ponds, sculptures and mini-museums that, depending on the time if year, offers different exhibits for the public.

Nash Gallery Hilton Head
Franklin G. Burroughs - Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum Myrtle Beach
If you are looking for some culture, breathing art, and friendly staff, stop into one of the most exquisite art museums in the country!
Had a bit of time before my flight home (airport only a few easy miles away which was a big plus on a rainy morning) and nixed the wax museums and other flashy spots in favor of this place.
North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center North Charleston
Over the last few years, we have visited several other fire museums (Denver, Boston, etc.).
The museum is interactive in many ways, informative on both the history of the fire departments nationally and in facts that everyone should know, as well as preventative knowledge.
Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Charleston
The synagogue is worth a visit, there's a very good, if small, museum, and a very nice gift shop, but the tour was truly excellent, full of humor, history, and insights about the Jewish community in the South.
The admission is $5.00 and well worth the time to be guided by a docent, see the panels which explain the beginning of the Jews in Charleston, a museum room filled with assorted artifacts, plus the most fabulous g...
Aiken County Historical Museum Aiken
Housed in an historical house this is one of the best museums we've seen for a small town.
Located in the former estate of Richard Howe called "Banksia," the museum is well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys history with a Southern twist.

Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery Greenville
Some of the collection in on display at various locations around campus or at other art museums; see the museum website for details.
While the opera, concerts, and theatrical presentations are leagues above what one would expect, the Museum & Gallery is no-doubt, one of the most remarkable collections of Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance paintings f...
Fort Sumter National Monument Charleston
In fact, the museums in the visitors center and on the fort were some of the most informative I have seen, and were the real treat of the tour.
Enjoyable and informative boat ride out to the island and plenty of time to walk thru the museum and also walk the walls and really get to feel the history and importance to American history.

Heyward-Washington House Charleston
Note that all purchases in its gift shop (and those of the other museums) are tax free, which is a nice little saving.
This guided tour began with an overview of how the house was built by Heyward, its subsequent owners, and how it was the first museum house opened by the Historic Charleston Foundation.

Having been stationed at the former Myrtle Beach AFB in the early 70's, I was interested to see how this museum presented the history of the base.

It is also included in the pass that you can get from the visitor centre for the month of January 15 museums for $25 which is great value
Our guide was excellent; she gave so much history from before the Revolutionary War through the Civil War, and there was a nice two story museum highlighting events from both periods.

BMW Zentrum Spartanburg
Very cool place to tour and bring the out-of-town guests and see the well-curated and changing exhibits shown in this small corporate museum at the huge Spartanburg BMW plant.
We then drove up the street to the BMW CCA Foundation and saw a wonderful collection of Vintage model 2002 BMWs on display in the ICON museum.
Wheels of Yesteryear Myrtle Beach
Plus, how many museums have a 1973 Gremlin X, known as the poor man's Corvette.

It’s different from typical art museums with its artifacts, movies, and educational features.
This is a wonderful museum with great emphasis on community connections and the artistic community in the state of South Carolina.
Hollywood Wax Museum Myrtle Beach
The props that enabled the perfect set-up for great photos with the wax stars in the wax museum were a unique addition to visits at other wax museums we had visited in the past.
My nephews are kind of "hum drum" when it comes to museums and you have to make your own fun.

Much more accurate and in-depth than the bumper sticker version of history that is presented at the National Parks museums.

Old Slave Mart Museum Charleston
I only wish Charleston had more museums devoted to preserving this part of our history.
Excellently organized and meticulously researched, this museum provides an honest and extremely sobering account of the slave trade in our country's history.

Gibbes Museum of Art Charleston
After moving to its present address in the Beaux Arts building at 135 Meeting Street in Charleston's Historic District in 1905, it has earned a reputation as one of the finest museums of its kind in the South.
My teen is addicted to art museums so when visiting Charleston, this had been on the list for a while.
