Upgraded Points: The 11 Best Museums in Charleston, South Carolina [2024]

Amar Hussain reports on the best museums in Charleston, S.C., naming the International African American Museum as one of them: 

“Charleston’s International African American Museum, or IAAM, is one of the city’s newest museums, opening to the public officially in 2023. IAAM’s mission is to help visitors learn and engage with the history of African Americans in the U.S. Using over 150 artifacts, 30 works of art, and dozens of films, the museum creates a multimedia experience that brings history and culture to life.

Currently, there are 9 galleries in the exhibit. They cover topics from the West and West-Central African roots of many of America’s enslaved people to the journeys of individuals of the African diaspora who have shaped U.S. history.

In addition to these core departments, the museum hosts temporary exhibitions that take a closer look at individual stories and historical moments. Since IAAM is still such a new museum, its collection is still in its infancy and is likely to grow in the coming years. It’s even open to accepting donated artifacts.

IAAM is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free for children under 6, $10 for youths 6 to 16, $14 for seniors 62 and over and military personnel, and $22 for adults. The nearest bus stop is Concord Street and Inspection Street.
