The Beaufort History Museum will be hosting the H.L. Hunley Traveling Exhibition March 17-18, 2023. This entertaining and educational exhibit features a full-scale replica of the Civil War era submarine CSS H.L. Hunley, the world's first successful combat submarine, along with other interesting displays. Reenactors will be on hand to tell the unique story of this vessel, from the first launch to the tragic end. Don't miss this one-of-a-kind experience!

The exhibit will be led by its General Manager, Al Couch, who is a 7th generation Charlestonian. His forefathers fought in the Revolutionary War with Francis Marion as well as numerous battles during the War of Northern Aggression. Al has been affiliated with the exhibit since 2010, teaching history and education. He's had the honor and privilege of playing a small role in the latest movie "Submerged" about the Hunley submarine. The exhibit was used in the filming of that movie also.

The event will be open to the public from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM on both days. Admission price is $5 per person with a limit of $15 per family.

Pre-arranged school groups must have 1 adult per 10 students with a limit of 20 students per tour slot. School group tours must be pre-arranged through Info@beauforthistrymuseum.org .

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