I visited this museum expecting to see all the wonderful exhibits advertised. Instead, all were closed except for a long row of sewed together tee shirts and an exhibit about the suicide of someone’s mother. They apologized and said they were working on new exhibits....More

Don't pass by - worth the effort to find. Quaint window into our countries past. This along with a visit to an area plantation - paints an authentic view of what it was like from a distinct perspective.

This was more than I expected. The tour was a human connection to the a past. Our guide, Gail, was terrific. We left feeling we had shared something very special; a memory of brutally hard work, and a tightly knit community of goodwill and respect.

I was hoping for more of an overall museum on Gullah culture, but was pleasantly surprised to learn about a close knit community of our recent past. The facilities are great and well maintained. Be prepared- Clarence Thomas is a local hero

We discussed the realities of life on the water and how near impossible it is for us to understand how challenging the lifestyle of the gullah people was like. Standing for hours shucking oysters to be paid $1 / gallon is a rough life. We...More

Probably 90 minutes to 2 hours. The orientation film is 40 minutes long, and a guided tour takes about half an hour. You can also do a self-guided tour of the museum.
