We learned about the museum in a small local magazine. We have lived in the area our whole lives! They need to do more advertising! Fantastic tour by Mr. Redmond that included two levels of the building, extensive Native American artifacts, diaramas of the early Cayce area, and a table used by Cornwallis! My family thoroughly enjoyed it and we... More

Really enjoyed visiting the museum...very interesting displays and documents on the history of Cayce....also, the grounds around the museum are fun for strolling and the younger family members will find lots to do. A good time investment for an individual or family.

Amazing amount of native American Indian artifacts and info; plus info indicating what an important eastern USA crossroads area this was in colonial and precolonial times.

We visited this museum to get a feel for a small town outside of SC's capital city. We were not disappointed. History goes a long way back in this town. 2 floors, with arrowhead collection upstairs. Low costs. There is a little bathroom. Not for weak knees or wheelchairs.

They have the largest arrowhead collection I have ever seen. All of the docents are caring professionals and spend time to help you get to know the history of Cayce and West Columbia. It is worth a trip for anyone!

There is quality and quantity here in equal measure...beautiful displays of thousands of points, arrowheads, axes and more from the Clovis period through modern times. Local Revolutionary and Civil war history is brought to life, along with the story of Cayce. Our visit was even more enjoyable, thanks to the knowledgeable and affable director. Even on a rainy winter day,... More

This place is a well kept secret and filled with some amazing historic items including General Cornwallis' table. I would suggest it to anyone interested in hearing of the local history of Saxe Gotha.

There is also relics and displays telling the history of the now defunct town of Granby and the current city of Cayce. The... More
