This area was orginally developed because of transportation needs. WE are at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. This museum tells that key to our history plus lots of interesting tidbits, like a 1950's gas station, info on hotels - steam boat travel, etc.

Small, but take it in during your downtown tour. Well done with educated staff - you even might find the city historian there!

This museum is located in a historic train depot. It gives you a concise, brief overview of transportation in Fayetteville. My kids enjoyed it and we will be back. It was nice to see the photos of old downtown Fayetteville and the banking history.

It wasn't very big, but it had lots of local artifacts and history. Two floors, free admission and very friendly staff. We also went on a Saturday and the farmers market was outside as well.

Took the kids by here after visiting the Airborne Special Operations Museum in Fayetteville. This is a nice small museum with a lot of local history. The Lafayette room and the Civil War room are very nice. Highly recommend dropping by this local attraction if you have a couple hours to kill. No fees to visit! Staff was helpful and... More

Stumbled on this gem when looking for an outing while visiting the area. Friendly staff and very interesting. Not for little children but a great adult afternoon activity.
