A lot to see for $7. We could have spent more time there but had other plans for the afternoon.

The South Carolina State Museum is a great outing for any size family. Children will love the many hands on exhibits and large dioramas. The history section is my favorite, with many old muskets, guns and sabers from the Revolution to the Civil War. Staff is frendly and helpful and knowledgeable. Great gift shop!
