Super Museum Sunday Funday

The best part about living in Savannah is the history. The city has so many stories and intrigue that it can take years to learn everything Savannah has to offer. If you were born and raised here, then you probably remember going on many field trips to historical landmarks or museums. Each February the Georgia Historical Society hosts Super Museum Sunday. The purpose of this event is to allow the community a chance to explore over 40 museums or landmarks for free. This is the perfect opportunity to check out Savannah’s culture and learn something new. Super Museum Sunday will be on February 8, 2015 from noon to 4 p.m. Since the event is only four hours, I’ve created a list of my top three favorites.

Oatland Island Wildlife Center

Oatland Island is magical. Guests are able to walk the scenic trails while having the chance to see wildlife in their natural habitats. There are so many different types of animal species available for viewing in this wildlife center. From wolves, various reptiles and birds, Oatland Island promises its guests a fun filled day of learning. For more information on Oatland Island please visit oatlandisland.org.

Fort Pulaski National Monument

Explore the history of the American Civil War at Fort Pulaski. This national park allows guests to view a cannon and rifle firing presentation. The park also has an active history program to teach everyone about what happened at Fort Pulaski. The park is surrounded by nature and wildlife. Alligators roam the moats around the fort and white tailed deer can be spotted around Cockspur Island. For more information on Fort Pulaski National Monument please visit nps.gov/fopu/index.htm.

Bonaventure Historical Society

Bonaventure Cemetery has sparked the imagination of many writers, photographers and filmmakers for many years. Guests should try to schedule a tour so they will have the chance to learn as much as possible about this historical cemetery. Bonaventure is the perfect place to capture mysterious photography, and listen for the haunted legends throughout the property. For more information about Bonaventure Historical Society please visit bonaventurehistorical.org.
