Savings on Charlestons Historic Sites

We are looking to visit some historic homes and hopefully a plantation on our trip to Charleston.  Depending on the time I would love to hit two homes and two plantations.  This could add up to be a pretty costly visit if I paid at each location.

Normal Admission Costs:

  • Edmondston – Alston House $12
  • Nathaniel Russell House $10
  • Aiken – Rhett House $10
  • Joseph Manigault House $10
  • Heyward Washington House $10
  • MIddleton Place $28
  • Drayton Hall $20
  • Gibbes Museum $9
  • The Charleston Museum $10

The Charleston Heritage Federation Passport grants you entry to the listed nine locations. Passports are only available at the Charleston Visitor Center on Meeting Street, North Charleston Visitors Center at Tanger Outlets and the Mt. Pleasant Visitor Center.

The Passport cost is $52.95 for a two day, $62.95 for a three day and $72.95 for a seven day passport.

There is a combination ticket for the Aiken – Rhett House and the Nathaniel Russell House for $16 if you wish to only see those two homes. These are sold  through the Historic Charleston Foundation at those two homes.  Here is more information on those tickets:

If I visited two homes and both plantations my out of pocket cost would be $68. The Drayton Hall and Middleton Place are about five miles apart so we could visit both in the same afternoon. They are about a thirty minute drive from the visitors center on meeting street.

Here is the link for more information on the passport:
