    Constructed of brick and tabby, enlarged, modified and repaired over two centuries, this historic landmark has been involved in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and the 1861 Battle of Port Royal, and has been connected with the Yemassee Indians, Spaniards and pirates. It has housed the Beaufort Volunteer Artillery, the National Guard, the Historic Beaufort Foundation, the Beaufort County Historical Society and today, the Beaufort Visitor Center. The museum features relics, two 1779 British guns, uniforms, letters, photos and weapons exhibits such as World War I hand grenades, Confederate sabers and a 1915 machine gun. It also tells the story of the Sea Islands, which was important to the development of Beaufort. A visit to the Arsenal museum will also take you to the Visitor Center that provides guide books, maps of Beaufort, souvenirs and tour assistance. The museum and Visitor Center is closed on Wednesday and Sunday. There is no admission charge to the museum, but donations are welcome. -Natasha Lawrence
