  • I am a Raleigh native whose roots run back to the Revolution in the Raleigh area. It was embarrassing that my hometown museum chose such a limited focus on the rich history that has taken place here. ...  more »

  • 3rd trip to this museum, and there's been something new each time. It's free - donation recommended, but not required. Right down the road from the capitol and on the drag from Fayetteville St. If you're headed to Raleigh, check out the capitol building and region then check out this cool little museum to learn a bit about the history of our capital city!
  • It was amazing learning about my families ancestory and lineage. They gave my father and I a special tour and were in shock when they saw our IDs. Thank you to the staff for making it an extra special day.
  • Free! A fair number of typos and editing slips in the interpretives, and most of the exhibits seem to be about the Civil Rights Movement. Very nice staff, decent use of space, reasonable hours.
  • A hidden gem in downtown Raleigh. Always has 1 traveling Smithsonian exhibit. Free.
  • Very good museum - fascinating artifacts. The building itself is a historic part of Raleigh.

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
