North Carolina History Center

529 South Front Street

The new North Carolina History Center has revolutionized the visitor encounter at the state’s premier historic site and sets a new standard for the museum experience. History Navigator tours using portable interactive devices add an exciting new dimension to our historic sites. Rotating exhibitions and the wide variety of interactive historical activities keep the experience fresh and exciting with each visit.

The Pepsi Family Center will transport you through time. The Regional History Museum takes you from the very formation of the coastline to the people who shaped the history of this region. The Duffy Exhibit Gallery, the Cullman Performance Hall, Lawson’s Landing: A Riverwalk Café, and the Museum Store complete the experience.

The North Carolina History Center is one of the “greenest” public buildings in the state. From permeable surface parking areas and restored wetlands to energy-efficient operations and maintenance – every aspect of development was initiated with our commitment to the stewardship of our historic landscape in mind.

Don't miss visiting this gem. The exhibits are terrific and the programming is even better. I'm fond of the Garden Tours and Lunch and Learns.

The North Carolina History Center is an ideal location to learn about the history of North Carolina and the earlier colonial times in our history. If you're interested in African-American history, there is an abundance of information on their lives and struggles as slaves, as well as free people prior to the Civil War. The center also has interactive displays and is great for families.

We came here today for the first time and had a ball. There is so much to do here that I never knew about. The employees are very friendly and helpful. If you have kids with you be sure to check out the family center and go in the time machine, my 8 year old nephew loved it! With all of the activities and so much to see, the admission price is well worth it!

Really cool place to go to with a nice surrounding area. Worth making a stop and taking a tour of the palace. This is also a place where they shot some of the scenes from the TV series Sleepy Hollow. You buy the tickets around the corner at the museum, which is another nice place and I recommend eating there at Lawsons Cafe.
