A Chat with The Powder Magazine
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Museum housed in an actual 302-year-old arsenal. As South Carolina's oldest public building, it's the State's only 18th Century Military museum. Special living history programs every Saturday!
What is the experience customers can expect?
Learn the state's earliest history in a structure that actually witnessed Colonial Carolina. Guests enjoy both conventional and interactive exhibits. Children win a prize when they complete our exhibit scavenger hunt! Museum interpreters appear in period clothing for special Saturday presentations.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As South Carolina's first preservation project, The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of South Carolina was inspired to save this important historic treasure in 1902. The Powder Magazine has been a museum since 1903!
What do you love most about your job?
Museum staff LOVE to interact with families who visit The Powder Magazine. Making history come alive while working within a 300-year-old structure is an incredible opportunity we enjoy each day.
