The IAAM is poised to host a significant national database: a hands-on family history and heritage lab. The Center can be visited in conjunction with the museum’s other exhibits, or as its own separate destination.
Through interactive touch screen monitors, visitors can access the South Carolina Origins Database. Here they can research their ancestry or record their own stories for future use.
Welcoming groups as diverse as high school students, family historians, and academics, the Origins Center will continue to expand and grow richer through active community participation.
