We really enjoyed learning from the kind, funny, and wise people who run this museum. I only wish they had a restaurant.

Can't believe we waited so long to visit this great place. The Pin Point Heritage Museum was created on the site of a former oyster/crab factory along the shores of the Moon River and does an amazing job of sharing the story of the Pin Point community. These descendants of the free blacks who settled here following the Civil War are considered to be Gullah Geechee and made their living from the surrounding waters.

They offer a wonderful guided tour of the renovated buildings that includes a great documentary film, a introduction to the spiritual beliefs of the community, and explanations of the crab and oyster processing industry. Our tour guide was Gail, a very articulate young woman who grew up in Pin Point and did an amazing job of sharing her personal perspective of growing up here. Strongly recommend a visit!

This isolated community survived the civil war and proud citizens fought in both wars. The area was stabilized and restored to a working crab and Oyster farm. While treatments to control ants destroyed that livelihood of the Comunity. The spirit lives on in its people. Take the time for a spirited guided tour from former workers. Handicap access is good with side walk access to the buildings. Nature is restoring the crab and muscle population so it may come back someday.

This is a great educational trip for kids. It's an old seafood/oyster factory, and they did a wonderful job converting it into a museum. As a bonus, the scenery is stunning!

On the recommendation of another guide, we went to this indoor/outdoor museum. It is the story of the Gullah/Geechee people and was definitely worth a visit. Be sure to see the short documentary on the area in one of the indoor buildings. It is exceptionally beautifully done.
