What is there to do?

It's a history lesson with a difference at King-Tisdell Cottage Foundation, where kids can learn about African-American culture and history in person through exhibits, art, films and tours.

The history books have come to life!

King-Tisdell Cottage Foundation looks after two museum at the one location - The Beach Institute, as well as the King-Tisdell Cottage

First, let's explore The Beach Institute! Here, you will find 4 floors of gallery space and exhibition space, with each exhibit giving kids a fascinating insight into the African American culture, and why it's so special and important. 

Then, you have the King-Tisdell Cottage which is the historic museum, where families have been learning about African American heritage since 1896! Pretty amazing!

The exhibits change, so you know you can go back and learn something new every time. They also cover a range of amazing topics, from art, to historical figures, and through photographs, documents, art, and artifacts, kids will realize learning has never been so fulfilling!

A fascinating day out for the family in Savannah, where history really can be lived once more!
