Last week we took a Homeschooling field trip downtown to the Upcountry Museum. We have passed it all the time and always planned to go...one day. So, when we got the email about other HS families meeting up to hang and learn we of coarse said yes!
This museum is only one of several. Its connected to the beautiful courtyard called Heritage Green and also gives you access to the downtown library, BJU Art Museum and the Childrens Interactive Museum (opening 09).
We had such a fun day learning about the history of our area. Being born and raised in NY, the south contains a whole level of history I never dreamed of. This is just a start of many day trips and overnight trips we plan to take the kids on.
This museum was exactly what we expected, grand, beautiful and full of Southern Charm!
