Overview

The Massie Heritage Center should be your first stop in Georgia's first city! Massie provides the best orientation for your visit with a 3D model of Savannah's entire Historic District, including three laser-lit narratives of the city's history projected onto the model. Massie's six exhibit rooms inside the historic 1856 Greek Revival school house offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn about Savannah's many architectural styles, the earliest inhabitants of the Georgia coast, the historic preservation movement in the city, and what school was like in the 1800s inside our authentic heritage classroom. We are located on beautiful Calhoun Square, Savannah's only architecturally original square, at the corner of Abercorn and Gordon streets. We look forward to seeing you!

I stopped here from the trolley tour. I wasn't able to see all because a local school was having a class trip in three of the rooms. The laser show in the main room was interesting. Would i suggest to pay to see? The answer...More

There was a lot of information included in the self guided tour. Each room had plenty to read and absorb about the history and architecture of Savannah. Children would especially enjoy the schoolroom and the old timey clothing to try on. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a neat place to stop and kill some time. Staff was very eager to help and talk to you about the center. They have a map of the city that is a must see!

Was a nice surprise for us to visit. The tickets came with our Oglethorpe Trolley Tour, so we went on whim and was very pleased.

We went here during our tour of Savannah. It was raining and thought it would be a good break. Cool place especially the display on the first floor.
