Florence County Museum

111 West Cheves Street
843-662-3351

The Art-Moderne museum building features changing art exhibits, regional history, Asian, African, ancient Mediterranean and Southwest Pueblo Cultures. The minuscule one-room schoolhouse found in adjacent Timrod Park was once presided over by Henry Timrod, poet laureate of the Confederacy. A 1917 locomotive is on site. The gardens of Timrod Park can be toured from the museum. The Florence Railroad Museum, at the corner of Irby St. and N.B. Baroody St., features a caboose and boxcar filled with railroad memorabilia.

The museum is new and has an exhibit on the history of Florence County. Its a big well lit space with superior presentation and signage. There are also many temporary exhibits throughout the year to keep locals coming back. The museum offers art classes for all ages, family days and docent led tours too.

This is a wonderful place to discover the fascinating things from Florence's history. People, art, artifacts, and a great art gallery next door. Definitely visit here if you're local or visiting. Excellent for kids as well.

Outstanding museum! It's well laid out and it's easy to follow the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present.
