Must See 7/31/2005

The North Carolina Museum of History is a must see in downtown Raleigh. Spend an afternoon learning about North Carolina’s history. I have always enjoyed the exhibits the museum has to offer, especially those dedicated to the civil war and Wright brothers. On my last visit I was also lucky enough to watch a play put on by a local church during Black History month. Admission is free and you can also rent the facilities. more
