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.

We didn't realize this museum was there until we jumped off the trolley to use the restrooms! At $7.00 apiece, it was a bargain. It is nicely done and it has wonderful displays. I particularly enjoyed the Girl Scout/Brownie exhibit. It brought back fond memories...More
