SC Maritime Museum
729 Front Street
Georgetown, SC 29440
The only museum in the state with the sole mission of exploring South Carolina's maritime history
Much of South Carolina history can be defined by its attachment to and love of the sea. There are countless stories connecting commerce, military, recreation, education and how ships and their crews and builders played a role. The SC Maritime Museum aims to tell these stories to visitors through various exhibits. The museum also hosts two popular events each year, The Burning of the Socks each Spring and the Wooden Boat Show each Fall.
