Savannah Historic BuildingsIt is housed in the old Central of Georgia Railway passenger shed. It is a National Historic Landmark built in the 1850s and 1860s. The railway used the building until 1972. In 1984, a historical attraction called The Great Savannah Exposition opened in the building.

The Coastal Heritage Society took over operation of the successor to the Exposition, the Savannah History Museum, in 1990. The museum is now home to more than 10,000 artifacts - the largest collection of artifacts in the entire coastal community.

The Savannah History Museum showcases the city's history from its founding in 1733 to the present day. Inside, you can see exhibits about the Revolutionary War Battle of Savannah, rare dugout canoes from the 1800s, and a changing exhibit of women's fashions from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The museum is also home to Forrest Gump's bench, one of Johnny Mercer's Oscar Awards, and a carriage owned by the family of Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Lowe. Other exhibits include weapons and military uniforms, as well as items from Savannah's railway history. Visitors may also enjoy the plush theatre and film presentation, "Savannah the Survivor."
