We stopped by knowing we were just doing the free Discovery center. They had a few neat exhibits to entertain our kids 5 and 9 for a little bit. We would love to do the tour next time when we are in the area.

Excellent! I sent a group of older adults to tour Hobcaw Barony and they absolutely enjoyed every moment. It is such a great tour for young and old.
