From June 26, 2015 - January 10, 2016, the Charleston Museum is pleased to present a new exhibition that chronicles the history of military uniforms from the Revolutionary War to the present, demonstrating the evolution of military dress from the formal, stiff attire of the 18th and 19th centuries to the more functional and utilitarian clothing of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Highlights include Thomas Pinckney's rare Revolutionary War silk coat, a range of Confederate uniforms from the American Civil War, clothing from the various service organizations of the First and Second World Wars and uniforms of some of our country's earliest servicewomen.
This exhibit will display whale fossils dating as far back at the late Eocene (roughly 35 million years ago) as well as the Oligocene (spanning from 33 to 23 million years ago). This exquisite and internationally renowned collection gives researchers an important look at how whales have evolved from their terrestrial ancestors. Modern whale specimens will also be displayed to show just how much whales have changed through time.Buy Tickets

In August of 2015, The Charleston Museum will present Transported: Charleston Street Scenes, 1860s-1970s, in its new interim exhibits space, the Lowcountry Image Gallery. This gallery, the first of its kind at The Charleston Museum, will be located on the second floor and will showcase photography from the Museum’s extensive archival collection.
Transported, on exhibit from August 1, 2015 to January 31, 2016, will examine the century-long evolution of the means by which Charlestonians commuted through the city. While transportation mechanisms have changed over time, thanks to area preservation efforts many of the streets and buildings have remained as they were. As the title implies, visitors will be transported into the photographer’s world in the moment he captured the image and to an earlier time in Charleston’s history.Buy Tickets
