With a taste of the history and culture of Cumberland County and the Cape Fear region specifically, this museum offers a very nice exhibition for an afternoon tour. Children would enjoy as well!

The museum is a must for anyone wanting to understand the history of the region. Great activities for children 7 and up. Will return to tour Poe House and educational backpack activities.
