This white ceramic mug features our iconic blue logo, which was adapted from a beautiful piece of Charleston exterior ironwork (c.1830). It holds 12 ounces and is perfect for sipping your daily coffee or tea at your desk, on your couch, on your porch, or still in bed (no judgment). For those of you who favor more utilitarian kitchenware, this mug’s shortened and wide shape keeps one from being limited to only beverages. Many of us here at the Museum have found ourselves spooning ice cream or soup from this cup!
In the Museum’s Armory, see excellent examples of historic weaponry, dating from 1750 to the twentieth century, with uses that ranged from military to more personal applications such as hunting and dueling.
In the Lowcountry History Hall, see materials relating to the Native Americans who first inhabited the Lowcountry and the African American and European settlers who transformed the region into an agricultural empire.
In the Natural History gallery you will see an extraordinary array of birds, reptiles and mammals that have called the South Carolina Lowcountry home since prehistory, including contributions from noted naturalists.
