Learn about Charleston history during the Colonial and Revolutionary eras as guides recount tales of the dungeons, pirates, and patriots that lived within the walls. You can also admire the Palladian architecture and see the sites George Washington visited during his weeklong stay in 1791.

The history of/in this building is incredible. It's well worth a visit if you are a history buff and are in town. We had a great time here visiting all three floors. Lots for kids to do also. Bathroom facilities and gift shop are available. Stop in here, you can't go wrong if you love history or old buildings!
