South Carolina Cotton Museum
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.
Cotton bales of all sizes. Have your picture taken with one or take one home form the Company Store.Beautiful Cotton Art both past and present are on exhibit through out the museum.
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.
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.
The guide was very nice. Also there was a lot of info on the growing and processing of cotton.
Hospitality at it's finest, with a fact filled main dish of Historical accuracy rolled up in Cotton -American History! It was worth traveling the 58 miles from our location in South Carolina to view the Cotton Museum. I'm a Historian and teach American History through the art of Living History. I gleaned new-fresh information to share with middle school students about the history of Cotton. I bought books in the gift shop that will add to my knowledge of Cotton as well as Indigo planting. Cotton Museum is a must to see.
Lots of great exhibits. Wonderful staff
