Savannah is steeped in a rich and persevering history, and being able to explore its past through a wealth of museums and preserved historical homes is one of the most enriching parts of living here. We love to visit the centuries-old homes of Savannah’s most prominent families of bygone eras, plus seeing where well-known artistic and political figures planted their roots. Museums like the Savannah History Museum, Massie Heritage Center, and Georgia State Railroad Museum help us put Savannah, its culture, and its infrastructure in a larger historical context. Meanwhile, well-curated museums like the Jepson Center for the Arts, Savannah African Art Museum, and SCAD Museum of Art expose us to talented artists from various schools, eras, and even continents. Our interest in Savannah deepens when we take a guided tour of where fiction writer Flannery O’Connor once lived, or when we walk through the home where Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low was born. Whatever our historical interests, the museums throughout the city offer up new and exciting perspectives into the past, present, and future of Savannah.
