Programs & Exhibits

The Sumter County Museum offers a wide variety of educational programming for visitors. Along with our normal activities, we also offer customized programs for groups of all ages. If you are interested in a guided tour, a living history demonstration, or want to attend any of our regularly scheduled events, please contact the museum.

We will be opening a Smithsonian Institution Poster Exhibit entitled Choosing to Participate. In an increasingly interconnected world, it’s more important than ever to inspire all ages to create positive social change. In the exhibit, all are encouraged to consider the consequences of our everyday choices in a historical perspective—to discover how “little things are big”—and to make a difference in their own communities.
