The State Museum, located in the old duck mill building at 301 Gervais Street, has 4 floors and by its own admission is “South Carolina under one roof.” Divided into art, natural history, science and technology, and cultural history, there is something for everyone.Click here for admission details.
There is also a well-stocked gift shop, the Cotton Mill Exchange. The Museum is an excellent place to learn about our state and has plenty to offer kids during spring break.
The Museum is currently undergoing some renovations. Accordingly, the front entrance is closed and visitors enter from the covered parking deck on the western, or river, side of the building.
