“Great Museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Edgefield as a small town has a great little Museum. We were in town visiting family and upon there recommendation went to the Museum. What a surprise! It is great visually and very informative. I strongly recommend that you go if you find yourself in the area.

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stopped here on a recommendation from the Aiken Vistor center thinking we would spend an hour or so. Well guess what...there is enough here to keep you busy for a day and it is free! It is a combination of the original 3500 sq. ft. house and a 14,000 sq. ft. addition. It has an unbelieveable collection of artifacts and displays ranging from Presidential Elections, to Kitchen goods of the past, to furnitire and organs, to Women in history, to Circus, to Golf, Horses, Baseball, to a fire apparatus museum, restored drug store, to incredible Military museum, to....need I go on? The docents are friendly and informative. This is an absolute don't miss. There is so much that I would probably break it in to 2 shorter visits.

“Lots packed in to one place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

The treasure hunt/geocache is entertaining & enlightening. the kids' section upstairs was one of my daughters' favorite places to curl up with a good book when she was in elementary school. I've been to several private functions and they are nicely done!
