I've never made a trip to the history museum that I did not enjoy. Festivals and other weekend functions often find side rooms full of children with make-it-and-take-it projects underway, hands-on history. One of the few museums that has a well-rounded take on the Indigenous population of North Carolina, from ancient times to modern. There is even information/displays about medicine, again from Indigenous NC to the present day.
Well worth the trip for all ages.
