Charleston South Carolina Historical Society Museum

An architectural treasure in its own right, the Charleston South Carolina Historical Society Museum is housed in a fireproof National Historic Landmark building. The museum features interactive exhibits on the people, places, and movements that shaped the state and nation. Pairing personal manuscripts, maps, and artifacts with innovative technology, visitors experience illuminating moments in our country’s past. 

The museum is divided into six galleries: 

  • Exploration and Settlement
  • Building a State and a Nation
  • Secession, Civil War and Reconstruction
  • Natural Disasters and the Charleston Renaissance
  • Art, Literature and Culture
  • Rotating Exhibit

    Allow about an hour to an hour and a half to view everything in the museum. The museum has metered street parking and is close to nearby public parking garages.
