Attraction details
Reviewed 23 September 2017

We stopped in Georgetown during our Myrtle Beach vacation b/c Charleston had recently been flooded and we like to sight see. We googled things to do in Georgetown and the Rice Museum came up. We bought our tickets and looked around the first floor of what had been a hardware store waiting for the next tour. We didn't find anything particularly interesting. There were displays of videos playing and some older period pieces. We went to the next floor and the main attractions was the skeleton of a boat. I did guess what the mystery artifact was. Lol. But then we went to a clock tower and viewed some Dioramas of rice production and how it was shipped around the world. I wasn't overly impressed. :(

Zenobia was great. She really knew a great deal about the history of the area and welcomed questions and interaction.

The rice culture of early Carolina is essential information for understanding much of South Carolina's role in American history. In this plantation story cotton was not king and a quaint museum tucked along Georgetown's Historic Waterfront offers an engaging explanation of the importance of rice. Through artifacts, dioramas and narratives the museum addresses the essentials of this valuable economy and gives true credit to the workers who created it. Our time here was well spent especially since our guide did such a great job of answering our questions. If you are close to Georgetown and have an extra hour, don't miss this explanation of Carolina Gold.
