What a great little local museum in an old school. It even has a fish tank from ATM! Really enjoyed learning about the history and to think it's all free!

Well maintained museum in a large old schoolhouse. We couldn’t stay long but enjoyed learning about the local history that one often misses on a beach vacation. Appreciated the inclusion of the African-American experience.

If you want a history of Horry County and Conway check this place out. Free admission, several displays throughout the museum which is a converted school. They have presentations on Wednesdays on different parts of the history of the area.
