Our Mission

By raising public awareness and support of the Aiken County Historical Museum, we strive to ensure a continuum of preservation, documentation and restoration of historical records and artifacts so that they will be available to present and future generations.


Membership perks include discounted event tickets, discount on purchases in Museum Store, custom programs, and more.

By becoming a Friend of the Museum, you will be helping the growth and development of what has been described as one of the finest museums in the state.


This year is the 150th anniversary of the founding of Aiken County!  To celebrate this auspicious event, numerous events in the planning during the pandemic are now on the calendar for the enjoyment of Museum members and visitors.
