Family Programs

Family programs at the South Carolina Historical Society Museum are tied to the history and geography of South Carolina. These activities are just as exciting for adults as they are for children!

February’s Family Program will focus on Robert Smalls, who escaped slavery by steering a ship to freedom in Charleston Harbor. Learn about his courageous journey and then build and guide your own boat to freedom!
