The South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum is a high-quality, award winning educational resource for students, educators, and parents, in South Carolina and beyond. Our free tours, programs, and curriculum enrichment resources benefit and reinforce learning statewide.
The museum’s exhibits are keyed to the SC state standards in history and Social Studies.
Military history is not just the story of men on the battlefield, but of the overall experience of war. Homefront hardships, economic concerns, medical efforts, mourning and memorialization, and the roles of industry and technology help to fill out the “big picture”.
A free tour at our museum brings the study of history alive for students of all ages! Virtual tours and remote lessons are also available, for school groups and others.
In 2008, the museum received two awards from the South Carolina Council for the Social Studies, given out at its annual conference: “Program of Excellence” for the year, and a special “Friend of Social Studies” award honoring our overall contributions.
Homeschoolers, like the state’s public and private school educators, recognize and appreciate the museum’s unique resources, and the quality, creativity, and excellent educational value of our exhibits and programs. Our free Home School Friday history lessons and activities remain highly popular among area homeschoolers.
