|Location: 224 Laurens St SW
|Description: Located in the historic Dibble building in downtown Aiken, the Savannah River Site Museum visitors can experience life at the Savannah River Site (SRS) and learn more about South Carolina's role in winning the Cold War through stories and artifacts from SRS. The SRS Museum recently completed installation of a new exhibit, "6,000 Stories" that details life before the plant in surrounding communities of Dunbarton, Ellenton, and Meyer's Mill, whose residents relocated to make way for the 310 square mile plant. Additional exhibits include information on the Cold War, local fallout shelters, plant production, radiation, waste cleanup, space exploration, and ecology.
Even after seven decades, the Savannah River Site remains one of the most influential entities in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), and is one of the CSRA's largest employers. Come discover its impact on our community from its mid 20th century origins through today. Hours are Tuesday - Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. Admission is free.
