A Must for Scouts

A wonderful venue for those of us who are dedicated Scouts! Also try to take in Juliette Lowe's Home in Savannah!

This is a very small museum, and has Girl Scout artifacts from all the years of their existence. It is not a house museum, like the Low birthplace, but is mostly of interest to former and current scouts. To me, the most interesting were the uniforms through the years. I even found the one I wore.

The below review is a bit misleading. There is no "tour" as this location is literally 1 room full of Girl Scouts artifacts. It has w timeline around the ceiling telling where in history GS adopted certain practice. It's only $3, but interesting and worth it. It's self guided so you stay as long or as little as you wish.

The program is well done but way too long! Tour and discussion should last no more than an hour! We did Geocaching and would have liked our girls to enter the coordinates into the GPS. The leader was really nice and connected with the girls!

After visiting Juliette Gordon Lowe's home, our next was the headquarters. We wished there was someone there to tell us about the building, what it was used for, etc. They show a 15 min black and white movie that GSUSA did back in the 1910's, there was a timeline and uniforms, badges, pins, etc. but that was it. Kind of... More

While the museum portion is small we did a wonderful program for our Girl Scout Troop here. They were very knowledgeable and worked really well with our girls. I would recommend the Early Years program to any troop that is in the area.

We had the best time & they offered us a chance to see the museum without the tour. We spent more than a few bucks in the gift shop. In fact the Daisy dolls were $20.00 here but if I had only waited until visiting the Juliette Gordon Low house, I could have gotten the same doll for $14.00 -... More

The first Girl Scout's Headquarters building from 1912 to 1985. Juliette Gordon Low started the world renowned Girl Scouts organization because she believed in the potential of all girls. She used the carriage house of her home as the Headquarters.When she died during 1927 she willed the building to the girl Scouts of Savannah. The Council office has since moved... More

We visited the First Headquarters with our troop and had great time. Our tour guide was Ambassador and she recently completed her Gold Award. She was fun, knowledgeable and the girls really liked her. We learned so much more about Girl Scout then we expected and had fun looking at all the displays.

Hi Diana! Thank you for bringing your girls to FHQ! When possible, we love to have girls teach girls. No matter how cool and awesome Girl Scout adults are ('cause, let's admit it; we're all pretty cool and awesome ;) ), it makes a tremendous impact on girls to be lead by their peers; for these girls to connect not...
