South Carolina Cotton Museum

121 West Cedar Lane

The South Carolina Cotton Museum is a "Blue Star Museum." The South Carolina Cotton Museum is a major interpretive site preserving the legacy of cotton and rural life. Exhibits of farm and manufacturing equipment spanning two centuries allow visitors to experience the cotton culture and way of life from the field to the factory. Additionally, it is the first stop on the South Carolina Cotton Trail and provides information on those and other area attractions.

Very interesting and informative. Worthwhile, if you know nothing about the history of cotton. Unfortunately, nothing about the disgraceful slave history which made cotton king.

A little spooky, and decidedly non-inclusive.

While on the smaller side it still manages to give a good overview of the crop. Good info, decent exhibits, and coverage of the history of Cotton make it a great quick stop.
