The Port Royal Museum

Port Royal was the first settlement of the New World, predating Jamestown by 45 years and St. Augustine by three years. Our town lies on Port Royal Island,  adjacent to the deepest natural harbor on the Atlantic coast of the United States, Port Royal Sound, and boasts the only public shrimp dock in South Carolina. 

The Historic Port Royal Foundation & Museum is located in the heart of Port Royal at 1634 Paris Ave. Port Royal, SC (Behind Corner Perk in Harbour Village of Port Royal). Open Saturdays 10 AM-3 PM. The museum features the history of the Town of Port Royal, the Port Royal Railroad, Port Royal Elementary School, as well the coastal history of shrimping/fishing/crabbing industries in Port Royal along with their impact on the development of the Town.
