If you are interested in agribusiness and curious about how tobbaco is grown, harvested and marketed then you won't find a more informative place. Furthermore, the museum offers comprehensive displays illustrating rural life through the mid 20th century. We have visited many family life type museums and this is one of the best both for quality, quantity, variety and information.... More

This is a great little museum that has a lot to offer. Its focus is on the tobacco industry in the area and shows you what it was like to raise tobacco in the early 1900. Lots of pictures and examples of the time period. The out buildings are well maintained and appropriate representation of farm life.

This museum is away from the hustle and bustle and makes a nice place to go for a short trip. The museum visit starts with a video about how tobacco is grown, like any other crop there was quite a bit to it. Then you get to tour the museum building and grounds on your own. I did wish there...

As a historical site this facility is a great find. Just off I95 in the middle of NC you can learn about life on a tobacco farm early in the last century plus alot about current tobacco farming procedures. Whether you are in favor of smoking or not this is a great stop on your trip or as a destination.... More

Every visit to the Museum is exciting. Great exhibits. I especially enjoy the "Stepping Into the Past" Saturday Series with numerous demonstrations and great volunteers.

As a native North Carolinian - had to rate this at least Very Good. Photos, murals, and authentic exhibits inside of this small but virtuous museum present life in North Carolina ... "back in the day". There are several other structures on site that also depict life in N.C. before the days of electricity, running water, and most certainly the... More

The video we viewed before touring was very good. Learned a lot about growing tobacco. Lots of items to view in the museum. The outer buildings were open so you could view the items inside. Nice history of the people living on the farm. Staff were extremely pleasant and were able to answer all questions we had. They had a... More

This museum will give you a terrific education about North Carolina's major economic crop. There is an outstanding short video describing how tobacco is grown today. The museum is full of artifacts from the early 1900s, but nothing is hands on and there's a lot of reading to understand what you see. They do have a small play area for... More

This place can be missed if you aren't careful. It's back off the road. There are old buildings on the grounds and I have seen old timey displays during the summer that are very informative for adults and children. The museum has an extensive display of memorabilia well worth the price of viewing.

THis is the only musuem dedicated to the history of tobacco production that I am aware of. While tobacco doesnt have the best reputation today, it was the backbone of farm life and the economy in North Carolina for over a century. THe museum has done a great job of accumulating a wide variety of the tools used through the... More
