The Charleston Museum, founded in 1773, is the first and oldest museum in America. The collections preserve and interpret the social and natural history of Charleston and the South Carolina coastal region. The full-scale replica of the famed Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley standing outside the museum is one of the most-photographed subjects in the city. The museum also exhibits the largest silver collection in Charleston, early crafts, historic relics, and the "Kidstory" room, which has hands-on exhibits for children.
