Highly recommended for restored oyster factory, tour, and documentary. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable local guides. The story of this self reliant and surviving Gullah Geechee community is fascinating and inspiring. Highly recommend!

Probably 90 minutes to 2 hours. The orientation film is 40 minutes long, and a guided tour takes about half an hour. You can also do a self-guided tour of the museum.
