Florence Museum Of Art, Science & History

111 W Cheves ST
Florence, SC 29501


The Art-Moderne museum building features changing art exhibits, regional history, Asian, African, ancient Mediterranean and Southwest Pueblo Cultures. The minuscule one-room schoolhouse found in adjacent Timrod Park was once presided over by Henry Timrod, poet laureate of the Confederacy. A 1917 locomotive is on site. The gardens of Timrod Park can be toured from the museum. The Florence Railroad Museum, at the corner of Irby St. and N.B. Baroody St., features a caboose and boxcar filled with railroad memorabilia.

The new location on W. Cheves Street will open early 2014. The Spruce Street location closes July 20, 2013.
