I visited this with family and it was an enjoyable experience! There was lot of interesting information and things to see. It was nice to learn more about Tybee and everything that happened there.
Cool museum, and cheap.
Very cool museum with a lot of history. Definatly worth seeing.
Located on Tybee Island’s north end, Fort Screven’s Battery Garland served as the gun battery and magazine for a 12-inch long-range gun. The room that formally stored over six hundred-pound projectiles and two hundred-pound bags of gun powder, now serves as the Tybee Island Museum. In 1950, the Tybee Island Museum opened its doors and now exhibits more than 400 years of Tybee Island history.
Another interesting historical fort! I love history, especially coastal history lol! Can't wait to take my children!
