Owner description: The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

This was educational without being stuffy and boring. You can do a self guided tour or one of the very friendly and helpful staff will guide you. Best room was a room set up as in the 1800's. They even provide apparel that the kids can try on to see what they would have looked like. Should be a definite stop.

Reasonable fee for a self-guided tour, which provided interesting information about the area and life in historic Savannah. The staff is very friendly and helpful answering questions. One even provided what could only be called a "mini tour" right on the spot while answering our questions. We enjoyed visiting.

The model of Savannah with the accompanying soundtrack is a marvel that should not be missed. The staff is very courteous and hospitable. They really should charge more for the tour!

This is a self guided tour thru the longest used school in Savannah. My kids enjoyed seeing how the classroom was and there is a cool display that gives a history of savannah with lasers to point out various locations and facts.

Massie School has always been a favorite stop for our student groups. Their programs are always top notch and student friendly! I always appreciate how they are willing to do custom programs to meet the needs of my group. Buttons, John, Charlotte, Sandee and all the staff are always friendly and eager to work with us!
