Great Museum with Fun for Kids

This museum gives kids the opportunity to learn about several time periods in history--from the Victorian South to Civil War or even the Native Americans!

This late Victorian was a kit house and is full of interesting wood work and other architectural details of it's day. It is right next door to the Cape Fear museum which is where you need to go to be able to tour the house. Though not haunted many people report smelling sweets in the pantry or Purdue upstairs. There... More

I went on my third tour today and I always seem to learn something new. I have a fascination with this time period. If you do as well, you won't be disappointed. My ten year old was able to enjoy it, but I can't say the same for my three year old. Naturally, in a home like this, you can't... More

Good idea for a quick trip downtown! I really appreciated how gorgeous the house was, and the museum right beside the house was really cute.

Thought this was initially something that was regarding the writer Poe, but it is from a local business owner in Fayetteville. But the tour was very informative and interesting.

The Victorian period in history is so fascinating because of the changes happening in the world. This house is wonderfully preserved with artifacts (things as simple as school work from the children that lived in the house in the early 1900's) that make it a really cool place to visit!!!!

It's a nice free attraction! We went on an open house day, so some volunteers told us more about the house than others. It was fun to explore and there were free cookies as part of their Christmas celebration! We saw the Victorian singers sing Christmas carols which was enjoyable as well!
