The sign gave hours open & the place was closed when we stopped in. Disappointed there was no one around. Will have to stop in again the next time we are in SC & hopefully it will be open.

We had a very nice visit to the Cultural Center. They will customize your tour. We were able to hear some history, sample bread, watch a dance and do some bead work. We will be back.
