[image-2] Following last year’s extensive renovation of its Natural History Gallery, the Charleston Museum unveils another renovation, this time of its permanent Civil War exhibit. City Under Siege: Charleston in the Civil War, which tells the story of Charleston’s role in the war from a range of perspectives, now features updated exhibit panels, new images, and additional pieces.

The Charleston Museum is open Mon.-Sat. from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, noon-5 p.m. [location-1]
