Rain or shine, the outdoor show is open to the public on Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. There is a $3.00 per person admission charge. Demonstrations will be held throughout the weekend. Food and beverages will be available from Mellie Mel’s, a favorite local caterer.
While you are here, explore our beautiful grounds. Nestled within the arms of Jarvis Creek, lies a 68-acre parcel of land which has been known as Honey Horn Plantation for more than two centuries. It is the largest parcel of open land on Hilton Head Island and one of the last places where you can envision what the island was like before development. The oldest homes on the island, magnificent live oaks and ancient cedars, beautiful wide-open fields that harken back to the days when this was a quiet agrarian community. Experience what the island was once, is now, and hopefully will be in the future. The Discovery House at the Coastal Discovery Museum is open daily from 9 – 4:30 and Sunday 11-3.
