About The Charleston Museum
The Charleston Museum chronicles the history of Charleston and the coastal region of South Carolina.
Exhibits include a history of South Carolina’s Lowcountry from the time of early natives, a collection of weapons from the 1750s onwards and the story of Charleston during the American Civil War. There is also a natural history exhibition as well as some more eclectic pieces such as an ancient Egyptian collection which includes a mummy.
It’s worth noting that the Charleston Museum has an interesting history of its own. Having been founded in 1773, it is said to be the oldest museum in the country.
