“History At It's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

This was the best part of the trip. I enjoyed reading about the history and learning about it. It's a great idea for future field trips.

“Call and see if it's open”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I enjoyed this museum, it is an important place to visit and story to tell, however since I visited it has been difficult to find the the place open on a set schedule - this may have improved - but just be sure before you go. Location is in the heart of Walterboro, exhibits are enhanced by the tour/curator. Plan to do this along with a visit downtown or to other memorial sites in town.

“An emotional , African American treasure preserved for future generations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2010

This is a very historical place in Walterboro run by two very dedicated individuals who wish to tell the story to the world. Sadly I feel they are not getting the support they deserve ,
I am glad we went , for they have truly taken the time and energy to make a difference in this very quaint and up and coming Colleton County.
The next time you are along the I 95, stop take the time to visit, it will be worth your while and if you can , spread the word. As rich as the history is in this area, it is not being spoken of as it should be.The fact that they have the information which they are willing to share should be utilized to the greater good and for a few moments in time, this first african American history museum of its kind in the area is celebrating the culture of people of African descent.
