Whether you are very interested or just a little interested in the history of the rice days, you would benefit from this tour. There was a lot of history that was covered for this time period and why the rice industry eventually stopped production in Georgetown in 1911. Worth the time and money spent to see this tour.
The museum store is small but carries a unique array of art, jewelry and more. You may not be "wowed" by this BUT I highly recommend taking the tour to learn about this history of the area and the rice plantations. If tour guide, Ms. Zenobia is working then definitely take the tour. She really knows her history and made... 更多
Interesting displays, but when you arrive you have to purchase the tickets in a gift shop on the first floor of the building, but this is not the building where you begin the tour.

We enjoyed our tour of the museum and learning about the history of the area. Our guide was very informative and easily answered our questions.

Great for the family, and the town is very cozy small town. Last but not least, you'll leave as an expert on rice know most of all the uses for... 更多
This is a very interesting museum. It tells you the story of the rice culture of the Lowcountry. At one time Georgetown was one of the largest growers of rice. Interesting artifacts!!
This is my hometown and despite being educated here this detailed history of the area was neglected. I was delighted to see how rice and indigo were the economic backbone of the region. My long-departed teachers missed a tremendous opportunity to instill a love of my town by failing to teach about our surroundings. I sure hope today's teachers in... 更多
The Rice Museum gives a good overview of what this area of South Carolina was like in its earlier days when rice plantations dominated the area. We enjoyed the guided tour through the exhibits that explained how the area was changed from a cypress swamp/forest into rice plantations and the effect that had on all of the people involved. Well... 更多
