Frequently Asked Questions

Is your museum about the history of the Cherokee people?

While the Cherokee people are certainly an important part of our past, the Cherokee County History Center covers all of Cherokee County, GA’s history. We have a robust collection of Indigenous pottery and other Native American artifacts in the Carolyn Smith Galt Gallery, but we also cover the history of the Civil War, moonshining, desegregation, and much more.

How long does a usual visit take?

Typically, visitors spend between 45-60 minutes exploring the galleries. The experience is self-guided so please feel free to go at your own pace. Guests are welcome to stay as long as they would like provided they don’t stay after we close!

When are you open?

The Cherokee County History Center is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.. The History Center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Hours may vary based on holidays or special events.
