South Carolina State Museum

The South Carolina State Museum, housed in the 1893 Columbia Mill textile building, allows visitors to explore art, cultural and natural history, and science and technology.

The museum offers exhibits, state-curriculum-aligned self-guided and guided tours for school groups (box lunches and on-site space for lunch available), outreach presentations (including presentations with a portable Starlab planetarium), programs for homeschoolers, professional development for educators, summer camps, and other recreational and educational events.
