Before enjoying the Tybee Island Lighthouse view, take time to visit the Museum! The Tybee Museum was established in 1961 by the island association, which is known as the Tybee Island Historical Society. The Museum’s purpose has been the same since it opened, to interpret the rich and interesting history of Tybee Island. The most interesting feature of the Museum is the location in Battery Garland of Fort Screven. Constructed between 1898 and 1899, it was originally used to mount a huge 12-inch “non-disappearing” rifled long-range cannon on top of the battery. This historic sight will enthrall kids and adults alike!
Another few interesting things within the walls of the Battery are seven rooms, which contain artifacts and exhibits covering more than five centuries of history. History buffs will have the time of their lives as they explore these seven different rooms full of amazing artifacts. The lower rooms of the Battery, which now contain the Museum’s exhibit, were originally used to store smokeless gunpowder. Take a tour of the Museum and be enriched by the history of the area. The Museum is open every day except Tuesday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. Adults cost $9 and children from 6 to 17 years of age cost $7. Children under the age of 5 are free.
Now that you know about The Tybee Island Lighthouse and the breathtaking view it offers, it is time for you to book your trip to the historic city. The Presidents’ Quarters Inn offers a selection of lovely rooms and suites, which are all elegantly decorated to match the southern charm of the city.
