Four historic spots will participate in Super Museum Sunday.

Super Museum Sunday is an annual event when museums in Georgia offer free admission and tours to the public.

Each museum provides a perspective on the history and culture that shaped Liberty County.

Fort Morris is a Revolutionary War fort that defended the town of Sunbury and its port from the British until it was conquered in 1779.

The Midway Museum is Georgia’s only colonial era museum and houses artifacts and memorabilia from that period through the Civil War era.

Dorchester Academy was founded in 1869 as a school for freed slaves and later became a meeting spot for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights leaders while they planned the Birmingham March.

Geechee Kunda Cultural Center celebrates and preserves the Gullah Geechee history and culture through the educational programs and events offered throughout the year.

Geechee Kunda, Fort Morris and Dorchester Academy will offer free admission from noon-4 p.m. and the Midway Museum will offer free admission from 1-4 p.m.
