This museum is worth a trip, if you find yourself in Florence, South Carolina. American military history is on display and arranged chronologically. Interesting to both young and old.

A great place to go and learn about the surrounding area's history. It's small and doesn't take a whole lot of time to walk through, but they have a lot of neat pieces of history. It's worth a trip!

I liked the old museum, but they're able to offer so many more programs in this amazing space. The art galleries are wonderful, and they do a good job at providing a snapshot of Florence history.
