Florence County Museum
The Florence County Museum showcases over 140 works representing 20th-century Southern art, along with works by Florence native, William H. Johnson. Through a range of exhibitions, studios, lectures and family programming, the FCM provides visitors of all ages an educational experience. The Pee Dee History Gallery is home to Native American and Colonial period artifacts as well as Civil War items from the Florence Stockade prison camp and Confederate Naval Yard. Natural sciences exhibits explore regional themes such as the formation of and biodiversity in the Great Pee Dee River. Temporary exhibits also are included.
It's a small and interesting place to go through, it won't like more than 30 minutes unless you want to stop and read every single plaque
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.
Friendly staff, good history of Florence, SC. I wish they were in there old building though.
The museum was beautiful but the curator who led us through was absolutely fantastic.
Very relaxing experience. Very nice Florence history exhibit.
