America's First Museum

Sharing the never-ending story of Charleston and
the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Founded in 1773, The Charleston Museum, American's First Museum, has been discovering, preserving, interpreting, celebrating, and sharing ever since. Our collections, exhibitions, educational programs, and events are designed to inspire curiosity and conversation - about the South Carolina Lowcountry - and the stories that make us who we are.
