Horry County Museum reopens in Downtown Conway

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Museum has now reopened in Downtown Conway in the newly- renovated Burroughs School Building.

The facility has allowed the museum to put up larger exhibits and more reenactments of scenes in history.

The museum's sole purpose is to preserve, protect, and educate the public about the history of Horry County over the years. Each collection in the museum is specific to a period of time in this region and the surrounding areas.

From animal exhibits to the textile industry, guests can expect to see the history of Horry County unfold right before their eyes.

"We have exhibits in here on military, natural history, Native Americans, agriculture industry, said Walter Hill, Director of the Horry County Museum. "We have an open storage gallery where we have really cool unique things from the museum collection on display for the public to come in and take a look at."

The museum is located on main street in Downtown Conway beside the public library. The museum will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
