History of Science and Technology in SC
South Carolina’s technological history is a broad one. So broad, in fact, that only a small portion of it can be exhibited at one time. The State Museum’s current exhibits include the histories of such diverse fields as transportation, communications, textiles, electricity, agriculture and forestry.
Many of our exhibits are full-size displays and include period surroundings that take the visitor back in time.
Others, such as two HO-scale railroad dioramas, aid visitors in picturing the state’s past.
Transportation, communications and manufacturing have continually improved and influenced our lives over the past centuries. Come to the State Museum to see some of these life-changing developments frozen in time.
