Not much for the kids. Some interesting items of local flavor but nothing too special. Most interesting to me was displays about how some companies transitioned from what they were doing to production for the war effort.

We saw the dead sea scrolls, then wandered the other parts of the gallery. The historical society gives free tours throughout the day. After the galleries and the tour we headed up to the third floor where you can learn about trains. They also have ample information about trains and expeditions on classic trains. We had a great time.

Duke Energy should stick to what they think they know. Supplying power to their customers. Children are easily amused, but grownups know Duke is about money and lots of it.

This is always a joy to go to. The films are well done and a treat for guests who have not experienced Omnimax.

The colossal, 1930s architecture alone is well worth the visit. For those classic film lovers out there, think "Metropolis" meets "Union Station." Bring a camera!

I visited the Center to see a film at the Omnimax, which is much like an IMAX, except the screen curves around the audience like a partial globe, immersing viewers in the experience. A lot of fun, and a fun, novel experience.
