Savannah GA Museums

Savannah is rich in history and the best way to learn of it’s history and be taken back in time is to visit one of the many Savannah GA museums

Pinpoint Heritage Museum

The Pinpoint Heritage Museum is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It occupies the former site of the Varn and Sons Oyster Canning Factory.

Today it is used to teach visitors about the history, religion and even the foods of the Gullah/Geechee nation.

Visitors can learn about the connection between the nation of Gullah and its language and Savannah.

The museum got its name due to the fact that the Gullah’s considered Pin Point to be their home.

The Savannah History Museum

The Savannah History Museum is also a must-see attraction. Savannah History Museum takes guests on a journey through time from 1733 to the present with unique exhibits and experiential activities. It can be found in the Tercentennial Park .

Visitors will  learn about both the Civil War and the American Revolution. Many of the museum’s exhibits are designed to teach visitors about the culture and music of Savannah.

One exhibit explores the life of Juliette Gordon Low, the woman who founded the Girl Scouts.

 

 

Battlefield Memorial Park

Directly across the street from the Savannah History Museum is the Battlefield Memorial Park. In October of 1779 soldiers from three armies fought for Savannah during the American Revolution.

Visitors to the park will be able to see the land that was the site of the deaths or injuries of 800 soldiers.

The park also includes a memorial dedicated to the memories of the soldiers who lost their lives in the battle.

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

Another museum in Savannah that is worth visiting is the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. The museum was founded in 1966 and holds exhibits containing model ships as well as paintings.

It also features maritime antiques that the city acquired throughout the 18th and 19th centuries when the Atlantic trade took place.

Scarbrough House

On the grounds of the museum is also the Scarbrough House. Though it now holds art collections it once served as the home of William Scarbrough, one of several men who had ownership of the Steamship Savannah, which is prominently displayed in the museum.

The museum’s garden is also named after Scarbrough. It was designed based on parlor gardens typically seen during the 19th century. The majority of the plants in the garden date back to the 1800s.

Visiting these and other Savannah GA museums is one of the highlights of a Savannah vacation.
