The docent was fabulous. The artifacts are wonderful, especially on the second floor. Well worth a visit and financial support!

Great local history museum and great gift shop. Excellent prices for local sweetgrass baskets.
I was surprised to stumble onto this museum on my recent visit to Georgetown. This is a town treasure, and I learned a lot about the history of Georgetown. The people working/volunteering in the museum and gift shop are welcoming and friendly. My main complaint is that there was very little emphasis or space dedicated to the role of Black people in the community, other than a small corner exhibit about the history of the rice industry, and a brief mention of a Black minister. Most of the museum is devoted to white people (military history, businesses, tourism from the northern states, and so forth). There was little acknowledgement of the human rights abuses that allowed this town to develop. For this reason, I found the museum limited and inaccurate. It could be called Georgetown County Museum About White People. Still, I recommend the museum; it is informative and provides a certain perspective about an old, old town.
One of the most informational visits to anywhere we have been. Learned a lot about the town and the staff was friendly
The museum and gift shop are filled with the nicest people and they are knowledgeable about town history. It's free and the staff are fully volunteer but they took extra steps to make the experience personable and friendly. They are invested in Georgetown's rich heritage and interested in teaching other's about it's impressive history. The museum is split into two levels. The first has a gift shop with handmade local art and such and books and a exhibit hall with a well written guide through the ages of Georgetown. The second is filled with artifacts from the town's history. They have a lot of stuff so take your time and learn something about the history of this historic, picturesque, and friendly little town.
So so so happy we stopped in this special museum! Not only is the staff incredibly kind and knowledgable, but the collection and exhibits are fascinating. We learned so much about Georgetown and America in general. Also, they have a wonderful gift shop filled with locally made treasures that truly top off the whole experience. Highly recommend!
