Interesting place
Jul 2016 • Family
What an interesting place
to see things of the past.
You'll want lots of time
don't go through too fast.
The staff were informative
they know their stuff.
Our guide seemed to be
quite the history buff.
My favorite was the old store
with vintage bottles and signs.
We went with a huge crowd
there weren't any lines.
The only thing I strongly
recommend,
is don't go in the blazing
heat of the summer.
But it is worth it
to see it all, to the end.

Excellent History of Sampson County
Mar 2016 • Solo
I have been through the museum on several occasions and I keep finding new things on each visit. I grew up in Clinton as a child and my family goes back to the very early 1700s. It is nice to see historical items & documents related to my ancestors and their friends and to imagine how it must have been "way back then".
The collection is housed in several buildings and is well worth several hours of your time, even if you had no connection to Sampson County.
Congratulations & thank you to everyone involved in collecting, preserving and displaying these outstanding exhibits.

What A Surprise!

When you enter the house that is the cornerstone of the museum property, you will have no idea how much there is to see, experience and learn. Once you step out of the back door, you will see that there are many other buildings on the property and it's all located just off towndown!
