With a taste of the history and culture of Cumberland County and the Cape Fear region specifically, this museum offers a very nice exhibition for an afternoon tour. Children would enjoy as well!

We recently spent a few hours at the Museum of Cape Fear. It was two stories filled with many very-well-done exhibits on the history of the area. The displays were good, and very informational. A great way to spend a few hours in Fayetteville!
