Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 threat, The Charleston Museum and its Historic Houses will be closed March 18 through March 31. All activities and events have been cancelled or postponed as well.
To keep us engaged during the COVID -19 threat, the Museum is offering a program of Virtual Content as follows:
Tuesday, March 24 at 2 pm with Curator of Historical Archaeology, Martha Zierden
Martha will be in the Museum’s Storeroom discussing her work with the NSF grant and colleges from the University of Georgia will likely tune in to contribute.
Wednesday, March 25 at 2 pm with Senior Curator of History, Grahame Long
Grahame Long will be updating the Museum’s Loeblein Gallery of Charleston Silver during the time the Museum is closed. Grahame will be open for questions on the objects, Charleston Silver, and more!
Thursday, March 26 at 2 pm with Executive Director, Carl Borick
Carl Borick will be discussing the American Revolution and how items in our collection related to this critical time in Charleston, and the country’s, history. This virutal content may be available via Facebook Live or as a pre-recorded video.
All of the above videos will be streamed through our Facebook page on Facebook Live (barring any technical difficulties or state mandates). The Museum will also be releasing a variety of videos from all of our collections, and lessons for kids, on Instagram and Facebook as well as a learning guide to access the plethora of information already available through our Research section. We encourage the public to send any requests, help with homework, questions for any of our curators, or any other inspiration by sending a message to any of our Social Media outlets.
