Nice little museum tucked away in a corner of Columbia. Enjoyed the original uniforms on display belonging to well-known figures.

If you are interested in military history and/or the Civil War, this is for you. It can be seen in 2-3 hours, and has a very reasonable admission fee. There are discounts for veterans and seniors. Adjacent to this museum is the South Carolina State Museum. This is also very worthwhile, but doing both on the same day might be too much. Come any day, but a rainy day would be perfect!

This museum has some really interesting historical artifacts. They had a very enjoyable 3D photograph slideshow with narration - although the narration with text displayed on the screen vs. audio narration, so at times I had to choose between studying a photograph and reading the accompanying text. I learned (or re-learned) a lot about the Civil War that I had forgotten since school.

However, be aware that the narrative being told throughout the museum can, at times, be skewed toward a "War of Northern Aggression" view of the Civil War. I went in forewarned but still need to take some of their commentary with a grain of salt.

Very nice maps, diagrams and narratives recounting the SC contributions to the Civil War. Somewhat disappointed that there not more physical relics
