You can Explore Savannah on a rainy day just as well as under beautiful sunny skies. Savannah weather holds true to what we come to expect in the south. Most days are filled with gorgeous rays of sun and a sweet southern breeze. When the rain does come, we barely notice because there is just so much to do when you Explore Savannah, GA.

Museums

Savannah does not lack for museums. You can find a museum for just about everything here. This equates to indoor activities, a win for rainy days. Believe it or not it’s a win in the summer also when you need a break from the heat.

Step back in time at the American Prohibition Museum. This is the only museum of its kind in America. Learn all about moonshine making, contraband cocktails and the Flapper craze. They even offer cocktail classes.

The Webb Military Museum is another one of our favorites. Located in Historic District, Webb Military Museum features military artifacts from the American Civil War to Desert Storm. Original uniforms, headgear, and equipment are displayed in a walk-through setting.

Another one to add to the list, Owens–Thomas House & Slave Quarters is a historic home in Savannah. The museum is a beautiful Regency style mansion built in 1819. Along with its adjacent gardens, carriage house, and slave quarters, allows visitors to explore the complicated relationships between the most and least powerful people in the city of Savannah in the early 19th century.

Being the birth place of Juliette Gordon Low of course we have a Girl Scout Museum.  The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, also known as the Wayne-Gordon House, is owned by the Girl Scouts of the USA. It is a popular historic house museum for the general public.
