Forrest Gump's Bench

You can't even sit on the bench, and it is behind ropes. That being said, the museum is well worth the price of admission and is very interactive for kids. Go for the museum, see the bench while there.

Forrest Gump's Bench

This bench is near the back of the Savannah History Museum. The entrance fee was $6. The bench and the rest of the museum were worth the entrance fee.
