The Archives operate as a closed stack. Due to limits on staff time and available work space, appointments are essential to access the collections.
Monday - Friday, 9am to 5pm.
We do close for lunch every day.
We receive numerous requests for information. Inquiries that cannot be answered in a short amount of time will be considered a research request. As we have a small staff, we are unable to offer research assistance except as a fee-based service. To contract for this, please complete and return the Research Service Request. Requests not accompanied by payment will be disregarded.

The Charleston Museum Archives is a collaborative partner in the Lowcountry Digital Library, an effort to make our local resources available through digitization.
