A note regarding our Cultural Institutions
Teaching American History in South Carolina strives to provide online access to the Palmetto State's unique cultural institutions. Museums and historic sites in South Carolina offer teachers a variety of educational programs and resources for the classroom (and the field trip).
Each Cultural Institution page presents information relevant to a museum or historic site in South Carolina. Teachers can find contact information and links to websites, as well as primary sources and teaching materials relating to each of these cultural institutions.
