The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

We found the Massie Heritage Center as a part of the Smithsonian Live Free Museum day in September on our way through Georgia. It would have been worth the admission fee considering how diverse the exhibits at the museum were. From the plan of Savannah...More

It was really interesting going back in time to this old school house. Lots of neat artifacts to look at and information to read. It is one of the stops on the Old Town Trolley Tours if you book that as well.

I decided to check this museum out because I was with my two year old niece and her nap was short so I knew we were due for a melt down soon if we didn't do something fun. Massie is an old schoolhouse that is...More
