“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

We stopped at the S.Carolina tobacco museum during our tour through South Carolina. By luck, we were the only ones there at the time and the museum coordinator gave us an amazing tour of the museum. We were so grateful. The museum is packed with so many artifacts and so nicely displayed. We left there very happy that we allowed time for this must see museum. Leaving a donation was a privilege.

“Stunning museum that soaked in history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2010

I visited this state award-winning museum about three weeks ago, and I was extremely impressed by what is available in Mullins, SC. Inside of a renovated, rustic warehouse, the museum boasts artifacts from across the ages - a kitchen from pioneer times and a pre-World War I quilt valued at over 20k among others. Be sure not to miss the little wooden house where they dry fresh tobacco - incidentally, it smells like fresh cinnamon, and don't miss Reggie, the museum curator who has traveled the world, read the globe, and has an endless supply of funny stories about Marionites. Excellent treat for a day trip if its paired with lunch at O'Hara's or Webster's, better than any place this review has been to in Charlotte.
