The Museum of the Reconstruction Era

at the Woodrow Wilson Family Home

The Museum of the Reconstruction Era at the Woodrow Wilson Family Home is the nation's only museum dedicated to interpreting the post-Civil War Reconstruction period and is housed in South Carolina's only remaining presidential site. Through a multifaceted interpretation, the Museum of the Reconstruction Era interprets Columbia’s late 19th century history to dispel the myths of Reconstruction that are so prevalent in society today.
