Although small and unassuming, we were impressed with the displays and the presentation by the Gullah Man. I was distracted by some of his current political commentary; but most of his explanations and stories made the visit worthwhile.

Older gentleman with a gift for storytelling. I'm a history and anthropology nerd and was fascinated by him. One medium room filled with artifacts. The quilts and their stories are the highlights.

Thought we where going to listen and see history which is our passion, but what we got was a glorify history of Michele Obama. No history of the gullah people.

I was hoping to learn more about the Gullah culture, but we arrived in the middle of a storyteller rambling about his childhood. He did add some interesting information, but not really about the Gullah. The space is small and haphazardly organized.

Andrew the docent tells wonderful stories of the Gullah people and has a good variety of things to view.

Small but busting with knowledge both visibly as well as told by a wonderful orator. My husband and I enjoyed our visit!

There is no admission fee. The museum is quite small and he does ask for donations. The most interesting thing in the museum is the curator. Ask him questions about anything you see there or about the Gullah. There also... More
