New! NC Museum of History Exhibit: The Story of North Carolina - Part I

North Carolina’s early history unfolds through this engaging, interactive exhibit that traces life in North Carolina from its earliest inhabitants through the 1830s.  Walk through the state’s fourth-oldest house, which was built in 1742 in Pitt County. Step inside a reproduction of an American Indian dwelling, and enter an exhibit area resembling the hold of a 1700s pirate ship.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the interesting people and events that have shaped North Carolina.  Admission is free.  The Story of North Carolina - Part II, opening Nov. 5, will tell the rest of the state’s story.
