Museum Of The Cape Fear

Museum Of The Cape Fear

One of three regional branches of the North Carolina Museum of History, the Museum of the Cape Fear opened in 1988. It serves twenty counties in southern North Carolina and features exhibits that reflect the history of the region. The twofold purpose of the museum is to collect, preserve and interpret the history and culture of southern North Carolina and, second, to provide technical assistance and consultative services to non-state historical museums in its region of responsibility.

We hope you enjoy our work.
