Most South Carolinians Have Never Heard Of This Fascinating Grass Roots Military History Museum
Few people in South Carolina have heard about the locally-grown, grass roots military museum that’s sprung up next to the Greenville Downtown Airport adjacent to the Runway Cafe and Runway Park, where visitors can also watch small planes land and take off. Unlike other, more official, military museums (at Fort Jackson and Parris Island, for instance), the thing that makes the Military History Center of the Carolinas so amazing is that the items on display are from private collections from those who’ve previously served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Donations are accepted, of course. So when you visit, please remember this 501 (c)3 non-profit could use a little love in the form of anything you can afford to donate. While you’re there, carve out time to visit the runway cafe and runway park next door so you can watch some small planes land!
