You’re invited to an OPEN HOUSE event to celebrate the reopening of our upstairs gallery space and the addition of our newest exhibits – Dinosaur Discovery and the redesigned 20th century gallery.

Dinosaur Discovery explores the world of modern paleontology and the discoveries that reveal how dinosaurs lived, moved and behaved. Interactive activities in the exhibit include a scavenger hunt, dinosaur puzzles, books and toys, paleontologist dress up area and more! This exhibit was developed by the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

Cape Fear Stories, the Museum’s main exhibit, features a refreshed 20th century gallery that was designed, curated and fabricated by the Cape Fear Museum team. This space explores how the county grew and changed and examines stories of segregation, work, education, technological change, leisure and medical advances to learn about the region’s rich and complex past.

A&M’s Red Food Truck will also be on-site and food will be available for purchase.
