About The Charleston Museum:
The Charleston Museum, founded in 1773 and considered America's first museum, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located at 360 Meeting Street in downtown Charleston. The Museum is home to the most extensive collection of South Carolina-related natural and cultural history materials known, two National Historic Landmark Houses and the Dill Sanctuary, a 580-acre wildlife preserve. The Museum's mission is to educate Charleston area residents and visitors about the natural and cultural history of the South Carolina Lowcountry through collections, exhibitions, preservation, conservation, research, and related programming. Museum exhibits provide a comprehensive overview of the South Carolina Lowcountry, while its historic houses offer insight into the families that owned the properties, the people they enslaved, and historic Charleston architecture. The Dill Sanctuary is only available for special scheduled programs.

For information, please visit or call 843-722-2996.
