NC Museum of History, Raleigh, North Carolina NC


North Carolina Museum of History is a free, state-of-the-art museum with excellent exhibits! Older kids will learn a lot from this museum and enjoy the attractive lifelike displays. Younger kids won't find enough hands-on exhibits here. This museum tells the story of North Carolina history during the times of the pirates, the Civil War, and World War II. There are many items to see, all displayed beautifully (no stuffy displays here!) and plenty of information to read. Many exhibits are experiential, such as the exhibit on fabric making which has a button to press to feel the vibration and hear the loud noise of the machines. There are videos to watch as well. We enjoyed this museum more than the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. 
After, cross the pedestrian plaza and check out the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, also a free museum.
After, eat at Brewerks Cafe (a three minute drive), in an adorable neighborhood of Victorian homes- easy parking! Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.



NC Museum of History is located at 5 E Edenton St, Raleigh, NC 27601. There is metered parking along the street.
Entrance is free.
Open Mon-Sat 9-5, Sun 12-5.
