TALES OF THE RAILS
Step back more than 200 years at the Georgia Railroad Museum to discover Savannah’s essential role in the Industrial Revolution. Enjoy live demonstrations at the Blacksmith’s Quarters to see what workers would have designed in the early 1800s.
OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM HISTORIC HOMES
Savannah’s story is shared in the many museum homes and cultural centers throughout the area. Visit the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, and the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters Museum, generally considered to be the finest example of Regency architecture in America and featuring one of the few remaining urban slave quarters in the country.
At the American Prohibition Museum, take a journey through the institution and repeal of the 18th Amendment, complete with over 200 original artifacts. Your students will be immersed in the history as they take photos with Al Capone, dance the Charleston (a favorite of the flappers) and feel the weight of a Tommy gun.
ARRR YOU HUNGRY?
Since 1753, The Pirates’ House and its characters have been welcoming students with a bounty of delicious food, drink and rousing good times. You may even see the ghost of a seafarer: Robert Louis Stevenson’s iconic novel “Treasure Island” mentions this establishment when it was a tavern and pirate hangout.
SEE A SHOWSTOPPER
The Savannah Theatre’s entertainment extravaganza brings you fantastic, two-hour, Broadway-style productions. Dating back to 1818, the theater provides an exciting way to spend an evening that’s fun for all ages.
