The docent that took us on a tour was very informative. She answered our questions with ease. The museum contained a wide variety of interesting displays. It is free but does rely on donations.

The Georgetown County Museum is easily located just off the main street. Parking is straightforward. Staffed by dedicated and well informed local people who bring additional colour to the interesting exhibits.
