A coastal non-profit organization is opening the doors Saturday to a new museum dedicated to ex-slaves and their descendents known as Gullah-Geechee. The Pinpoint Heritage Museum is located near Savannah in a former seafood processing factory once iconic to the community. Now the renovated buildings feature presentations about seafood and the culture it supported.
Savannah officials are aiming to attract a different kind of tourist with a new children's museum. A non-profit history group plans to open a one-acre outdoor exhibit area geared toward kids in June. The first phase is called the Exploration Station. The museum is backed by public and private donors interested in more options for kids and their parents.
