We paid $7.50/person to walk through this tiny museum. Some of the stuff looked like it was put together by high school students for a history project. I wouldn't waste my time when there are other places to visit.

Good information and reasonably priced. It drove my husband nuts that the exhibits weren't necessarily in chronological order, but still enjoyable. I was completely freezing in there, kinda wished I brought a sweater even though it was in the 90s outside.

This museum was cute and covered the history of Savannah. We took a Lyft there from downtown Savannah and it was a quick ride. Museum was small but had all the important information and great artifacts. We missed the reenactment but it really sounded wonderful....More

We just happened to arrive at the beginning of a tour and got very lucky. The reenactment of the battle for Savannah was informative, entertaining and not too long to lost interest in. It was very hot outside and this was a fantastic way to...More
