Admission: Aiken-Rhett House Museum

As of June 11, 2020, the Aiken-Rhett House (c. 1820), located at 48 Elizabeth Street, will be open Thursday through Sunday from 9am until 12:30pm. 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 between 9am and 11:45am to allow enough time before the museum closes at 12:30pm.

We ask that you limit the size of your group to a maximum of four (4) people. The number of guests allowed in the house museum simultaneously will be limited in accordance with CDC guidelines. You may experience a short wait before starting your tour. All guests are asked to wear a face covering and to maintain a social distance of 6 feet from other visitors and staff while on the museum property.

Questions? Call: (843) 723-1159.
