Attraction details
Owner description: The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

“Wonderful history for adults and children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Good for all ages, but has many hands-on activities aimed at kids and teens. Wonderful history of Savannah: located in a beautiful old school building. In the heart of downtown; walking distance to everything in the Historic District. Faces on one of the beautiful squares; all of which are good for picnicing on nice days.

This museum is a great introduction to Savannah, the layout of the city, and more. We really learned a lot and it was a great way to start.

“Wish we had gone here first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a fairly new museum with a great overview of the architecture of Savannah. Our only regret was not going here before taking a city tour to get a better background. The model of Savannah was fabulous. The information is so well-presented that you do not get overwhelmed. Great for kids with fun activities geared to their level. The Savannah School Board and volunteers should be very proud of themselves for using this old school building so well.

“Worth a stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is the site of the first public school in Georgia. It has a replica of the city and a nifty (but short) laser show. It's mostly targeted on the architectural heritage, but has an old school room that makes it fun for kids. Many of the exhibits are kid friendly as well.
