Just FYI you have to make reservations in advance to do this with covid 19. They are limiting the visitors through it.

This was a new event held on November 2nd All Sould Day. What a Fabulous job their organizers did putting on a beautiful informative fun experience. I have heard of this and wanted to go to one but never had the chance and to think it was right in my home town. They had a traveling exhibit from Wake Forest University's Anthropology department on the history and origin. Along with actual artifacts. An Offenda (a type of alter) where you could place pictures of your deceased loved ones along with tokens of remembrance. Beautiful. They had several arts and crafts for children of all ages to do free of charge as well as Wonderful dance groups and music by a real Mariachi band and food vendors with authentic foods to round out the funniest day I have ever had at a museum. Cant wait for next year! Thank you for a Great time

Spent a day in Mt.Airy and decided to check out the museum. I wasn’t expecting to to be as great as it was. It had 4 floors of exhibits starting from the early settlers and Native American settlements to the modern day local celebrities and sports heroes. They also have a great fire truck exhibit. The $6 cost is well worth it.

I was looking for some activities in Mount Airy and this museum came up. There were multiple exhibits all of which were nicely done and communicated the history of the area. Overall I was very impressed with this museum and would visit again.

If you have an interest in history this is a must! From May - November they have “ghost” walking tours - these are great also!
