I loved the interactive revolutionary battle. Officer "Bradford" was wonderful, fun, and informative. Something educational for all, and would be especially fun for kids to learn history.

Walked up to Savannah History Museum, paid for a ticked and found the Forrest Gump bench. Rest of the museum was not that impressive considering the great history Savannah offers.

We had a blast here. They house the Forrest Gump Bench, tons of historical artifacts, and stories of the girl scouts, plus much more! I could have easily spent more time here reading everything. Definitely check out the video at the end.
