Very nice place to visit. It was free and when you have kids under the age of 10 years old. Who need to walk a lot is beautiful.

We got to the museum about 45 minutes before closing. Mistake. There is much more to see in this museum. It's tastefully done. The folks at the museum are incredibly friendly. The museum gives a good history of Greensboro and the surrounding area.

This museums is great to visit if you are visiting Greensboro. It has a lot of exhibits on the history of Greensboro. It is also worth asking for a visit of the McNairy house that is on the museum grounds.
