The museum has temporarily moved to digital-only events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See below for our offerings. These virtual events are free, together with new digital learning opportunities for children and families available on our Digital Learning page.

We need your financial support to serve the community during this challenging time and to keep protecting Charlotte's oldest home, the 1774 Alexander Rock House.

Can you support us with a donation or membership today?
