This is not a large museum, but we didn't have a lot of time, so that worked for us. I was especially impressed with their exhibition on Juliette Low, but the lights were so dim that I could not read some of the information cards.

I was a bit bored by this museum. The lighting was pretty dark making some exhibits hard to read. It did provide a few laughs though. But in a good way😊

Bradford was very knowledgeable and engaging. Including the reenactment, we spent about 1 1/2 hours there. Highly recommend, but maybe not for...More

We paid $7.50/person to walk through this tiny museum. Some of the stuff looked like it was put together by high school students for a history project. I wouldn't waste my time when there are other places to visit.

Lots of local history and things to learn about Savannah. Forest Gump's bus bench is also housed here. My Girl Scouts did a scavenger hunt while visiting. I think it made them pay more attention to what they were seeing...kids aren't into history as much...More

Savannah has so much to discover. And I didn't discover this place until the last day. There are other museums near here as well. It is a smaller museum located inside a old train building. The museum takes you through the history of the town,...More
