located in the arsenal the beaufort city museum was very disappointing. i personally think it was not worth the $4 admission charge. check out the arsenal courtyard and see the british canons, but skip the museum. i think it is sad with all the history and culture in beaufort they could not offer a better exhibition. for serious students of amerian revolutionary and civil war history this historic building is worth a look.
Built in 1852, the Berners Barnwell Sams House No. 2 would be a great place to be trapped with it's Classic Revival architecture.
