  • This is the best place to do it. Whether your just visiting Greensboro or moving here, I would highly recommend you set aside a day to experience the wealth of history this museum possesses. Very info...  more »
  • The museum is small, but does give you a sense of local history and some very extraordinary exhibits. The museum staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Normally I'd expect to pay for such a fine museum...  more »
  • I went on a tour led by Dylan Tyler and he was fantastic. The museum is chock full of artifacts, and it is a must see if you are in Greensboro  more »

  • Pretty interesting place. It's well laid-out and has some really good tidbits of information and "voice snippets" portrayed as being from figures throughout history. I was (more than) a little worried there would be a strong Confederate bias in the Civil War exhibit, but it was overall balanced and seemed to attempt to be non-partisan. I am a little disappointed it seems they glossed over much of Greensboro and North Carolina's horrific past. I understand they want to keep it open for families, but perhaps in the future they would consider opening an exhibit rated 16+, or with a disclaimer prominently placed. It is important for museums to show all of history, good and bad, so we may learn from it. Overall, a decent local museum. Definitely check out the International Civil Rights Museum, too, and the gift shops for both are good. (There are lots of pretty scarves and pashminas at this one's..!)
  • It was loads of fun and i have gone back since the first time i went! But i will tell you it is very cold in there because they have too many air vents!! This needs to be fixed!!!
  • A nice way to learn about the history of the area. I especially enjoyed the old drugstore exhibit and the old fire engine.
  • This museum is a local gem. Great exhibits, friendly staff, free parking, and free admission. This is a very educational place, and you'll want to visit it again --- I know I do!
  • Great history, great museum!
