Admission: Aiken-Rhett House Museum

The Aiken-Rhett House (c. 1820), located at 48 Elizabeth Street, is open 7 days a week from 10 am to 5 pm.

You may visit anytime within those hours as we do not have reserved starting times. However, we do ask that you plan to arrive and start your tour before 4:15 pm to allow enough time before the museum closes at 5 pm.

For groups of 12 or more, please call the house manager to reserve a tour. Discounts apply.

* The Aiken-Rhett House will be closed Nov. 28 - Dec. 1 and Dec. 4 - 5.

NOTICE: If you plan to visit the Aiken-Rhett House on Friday, December 2 or Saturday, December 3, 2022, please note that regular admission tickets or combination tickets will NOT be honored on these two dates. To purchase admission tickets to visit the Aiken-Rhett House on Dec. 2nd or 3rd, please purchase them here. Regular admission and combination tickets to the Aiken-Rhett House will be honored on all other dates except December 2 and 3, 2022.
