From both outside and inside the museum does not look like much at first glance, but don't let that deter you. My daughter and I found it on the unlikely side of a non-descript building just off Georgetown's waterfront. The museum is free; they receive...More

This is a one room museum, which is now located in the historic district of Georgetown. There are quite a few artifacts, tools, etc that were used by the Gullah People. The museum had been run by Andrew Rodriguez and his wife, but she passed...More

This little place's building remains vacant on Petigru, on the way to Recycle. Museum moved to Georgetown, I believe.

This is a small but very worthwhile educational experience. Take the time to learn of the Gullah culture.

We spent almost an hour trying to find it in Pawley's, only to discover they have moved to Georgetown. The couple who were there were fun to talk to and the woman spoke to us in Gullah, which I had never actually heard. We bought...More

This is a very small space, and not necessarily what most would think of as a physical museum. But the information and experience come from the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez. They are a wealth of knowledge and readily available to share their information. I...More
