Housed in the Columbia Mills building, the world’s first fully electric cotton mill built in 1894. On Oct. 29, 1988, the South Carolina State Museum opened its doors, bringing to the citizens of the Palmetto State the newest, and one of the finest, state museums in America. Since that day it has awed, delighted and enlightened millions of visitors.
The Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
