The Colleton Museum features a permanent collection which explores the history of Colleton from prehistoric times to the early 1900s. There is also an on-going exhibit on Animals of the ACE, a natural history display featuring wild animals indigenous to the South Carolina Lowcounty.
The Colleton Museum is housed in the “Old Jail,” which is the third jail in the county's history. The two-story neo-Gothic structure resembles a castle and sits like a jewel overlooking one of Walterboro's main thoroughfares. Constructed in 1855–56, it is said to be built of brick from the old Jacksonboro Courthouse.
