History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
The Upcountry History Museum is a history museum in Greenville, South Carolina that displays the regional history of fifteen upstate South Carolina counties from the early 18th century to the present. Exhibits designed by Christopher Chadbourne and Associates emphasize technology rather than artifacts "to engage the senses, ignite the imagination and transport visitors back in time."
The museum is located on Greenville's Heritage Green with The Children's Museum, the Greenville County Art Museum, the satellite Museum & Gallery of Bob Jones University, the Greenville County Main Library, and the Greenville Little Theatre. The museum opened in September 2007. It is operated by Furman University.

In 2015, the Upcountry History Museum was named a Smithsonian affiliate. Its first Smithsonian exhibit was Searching for the Seventies: The DOCUMERICA Photography Project.

  • A wonderful undemanding museum that gives a fantastic overview of the history of the area. The staff was lovely and very friendly. The exhibits were professional, essy to follow and, very enjoyable.
  • Very informative. I am not from South Carolina so I know very little of its history. Although this museum is focused on Upstate history, the first floor has some generic state history that helps contextualize the Upstate history.
