Now that Governor Cooper has moved the state into phase 2.5 of reopening, we are excited to announce that the museum will begin reopening to the public in phases starting with the opening of the grounds of the 1774 Alexander Homesite for one Saturday each month. Tickets are on sale now for the October 24, 2020 An Afternoon on the Grounds experience.

We will share more details about our phased reopening plans in the coming weeks. Rest assured that the safety and comfort of our visitors and staff will be at the forefront of our plans, and we will consult the latest guidance from government health officials as we make decisions. Visit the Events page to learn more about our upcoming virtual events. Learning opportunities for students and families are available on our Digital Learning page.

Your financial support now will empower us to continue serving our community, enriching lives through shared understanding of the past and inspiring dialogue about the future.
