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!

My wife and I had the opportunity to join a guided tour rather than a self-guided tour. It is a great place to learn about early childhood education in Savannah. You have an opportunity to experience an early classroom, but also have an opportunity to learn about each architectural styles and a 3 dimensional layout of historic Savannah.

We visited the Massie Heritage Center without really knowing what there was to see inside. I liked the photos on the wall of the city, because we didn't take the river tour. I felt that most of the things were geared toward kids, like the classroom. That being said, when we were there it was filled with adults that were enjoying themselves. I liked the room that talked about preservation the best. Someone else was watching the video and I was jealous that they had the seats. I did not like the restrooms, which were clearly designed for kids, and to be honest, were the reason we popped in. If you want to go, do some research on line, and see if you would find it of interest.

This attraction was OK at best. Some interesting info, but some of the other attractions in town are much more worth the time.

We enjoyed the Center- it made us feel good. I got the feel of what it would have been like to atten school many years ago. This was a very civilized school in a very civilized city.
