  From Liberty Square to the Visitor Education Ctr
by grandmaR

The Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center is a free museum at the concession tour boat wharf adjacent to Liberty Square ). The concession tour boats leave from here and also from Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant.

The museum is open all year the same as the park. There are no fees for the museum, and there is also no charge for the park, but you have to pay for the boat ride to get there.

Directions: At the corner of Concord and Calhoun Streets in Charleston (next to the aquarium
