  • I really liked visiting the South Carolina Historical Society and all of the history and education on display. It is great to have so much history to learn about and the museum has a great number or cool displays that are well worth checking out and learning from. Everything here is very well organized and put together and it is a good opportunity to learn something new even if you think that you already know it all. The staff here is very excellent and knowledgeable. I had a really good experience at the South Carolina Historical Society and look forward to being able to return in the future to experience it again and show it off to some guests that want to learn more about the rich history of South Carolina.
  • Loved bringing my class here for a field trip. The scavenger hunt was fun and challenging but not too difficult. And they enjoyed guessing the artifacts.
