About the Museum
NOTICE: It is July 7, 2020 and, due to the Pandemic, we remain closed for the time being. However, much is being done to create a safe environment for all our visitors. Special attention is being paid to air-quality and providing a super clean environment. Our gift shop, main interior display rooms and research center/library have all been outfitted with individual HEPA/UVC light filters. In addition to sanitizing the HVAC air handlers, we've conducted a thorough deep-cleaning throughout our facility. Upon opening, we'll have all state protocols in place. We're looking forward to setting an opening date as soon as possible.
--- Acclaimed as one of the finest small town museums in the state. The Village Museum opened in April 1999. Exhibits demonstrate a time line of history beginning with the villages of the Seewee Indians and the settlement at Jamestown, S.C. by the French Huguenots, through the rice planting on the Santee River plantations and the establishment of the Town of McClellanville as a coastal resort. Displays also tell of the simple lifestyle of the the postwar farmer, the rise of timber harvesting in the 20th Century and the growth of the local seafood industry. The museum attempts to both educate its visitors as well as entertain them.
