When we arrived and noticed school buses we expected the worse. But even with a school Field Trip the museum wasn't too crowded. Great exhibits. Staff was friendly and polite. Will return again

Such a cool place. Amazing for kids of all ages, and adults alike. Fascinating exhibits, most pertinent to the local North Carolina area. Highly recommend for a fun day out.
