The Savannah History Museum was a delight. It was full of many hidden treasures, especially, if you are a history buff. I will make plans to spend more time there during my next visit!

We spent just over an hour here. Found it pretty interesting. Saw the Forrest Gump chair, an interesting display on Juliette Low and other interesting displays. Nicely restored building.

It takes 30 min to visit, very small and actually nothing special. If you have extra time and want to see the Forrest Gump famous bench there you go.

We began our trip by visiting the museum. It gives a good overview of the area and one can book tours from here. We picked up a hop on and off tour here that lasted all day. We also met here for a ghost tour.

Will be a quick stop because it is quite small. It is a self-guided museum. It did contain some interesting sites And they offer a 15 minute film prior to entering the exhibition.

A visit to the museum gives interesting background to Savannah's story, which is good to know for those who are planning to visit some of the mansions in the historic district. Some eye-opening exhibits.
