We both enjoyed looking at the memorabilia and reading the information collected in this building run by the Daughters of the Confederacy. Well worth a visit.

Although this is a small museum, there’s plenty to see. The artifacts on display cover a wide area of interests, including old photos & paintings, weapons, clothing, journals & ledgers, the list goes on. I have an interest in historic flags and learned about the different Confederate flags, which you get to see. I especially like the first flag with the 7 stars. Definitely worth spending time here.

Was very impressed with the numerous historical artifacts located at this museum. It is a worthwhile stop while in Charleston. They have an original flag that flew over Fort Sumter. Many historical facts along with the displays. Everything was well organized and presented. So much to see I could have spent a couple of hours there. I highly recommend a visit here when you are in Charleston.

Loved going through the confederate museum. It's located at the front end of the City Market, upstairs. Spent about an hour looking at all of the fabulous Civil War memorabilia. Even my wife enjoyed it.
Everything from photos/swords/guns/letters/uniforms, etc.
If you enjoy reading about the Civil War, this is a must see in Charleston.

This is only open at certain times mainly in the morning

Located at the head of the covered market it boosts some solid confederate history

Nice to see the confederate flag being flow. - this shows the museum is open

This was a major time in US history so worth noting its importance
