Special Exhibits


In June 2016, the Museum unveiled a new Special Exhibit focused on the post Civil War Reconstruction Era here in Beaufort, titled Reconstruction Beaufort, Islands of Hope in a Sea of Distress

In the South, the Civil War wreaked devastation, and the Reconstruction Era which followed doomed it to more--except in Beaufort. This exhibit explains how and why education, politics, industry and agriculture thrived here while suffering elsewhere.

This exhibit is currently on display across the street from the Arsenal, at the National Park Service's office.







Our mission is to preserve, promote and interpret the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.
