Historic Charleston Foundation is excited to announce a fun new way to engage with the Nathaniel Russell House Museum this summer – Dork out with the Director! (Director of Museums, Grahame Long, specifically.) This NEW summer program will bring the community extended hours at the Nathaniel Russell House every Wednesday this summer – allowing you to explore this impeccably restored architectural gem.
While there, join Historic Charleston Foundation’s Director of Museums to find out some way-too-detailed answers to some of the Nathaniel Russell House’s most frequently asked questions and get a close up look at some Historic Charleston Foundations most important collections. This fun and engaging new summer program is great before (or after) happy hour, for an extended afternoon with the family, or to entertain guests visiting from out of town!
This complimentary program is free with admission to the Nathaniel Russell House Museum each Wednesday this summer. Guests can take a guided tour (last one starts at 4 pm) and then stay to “Dork out with the Director” to ask all of those burning questions. Full schedule listed, below!
