Beautiful building, knowledgeable friendly staff!

Kyle Albertson

This whole area is actually very interesting and even though Elizabeth City and Edenton are small towns, they have been well documented over the years including what has happened in the other surrounding counties nestled here along the Albemarle. Unfortunately our history stands in the shadow of places like the Outer Banks, and the Colonial Triangle (Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown) so you would be amazed at how much history is right under your feet. The museum is a great place to visit for both adults and children and I've never seen it all that busy which to me is a good thing. I'd say the building is split in half with one part being recent and the other half is the truly historical stuff. They have a good collection of recent history (just cool objects from the early 1900s that give you an idea of what life was like in a small southern farm town) and the second part I spoke of has a ton of information ranging from the civil war all the way to colonial times where this area was used for secret hideaways for pirates and merchants. Also they cover some aspects of the natives that lived here.

Amber Tomasch

Brought my kids and we loved the new wedding section

Gary Miller

Great local place to visit and learn about local life.

This was an amazing place to visit! I took my kids over Spring Break, and they really enjoyed it. My teenager actually put her phone in her pocket and didn't pick it up for over two hours! We learned so much about the Albermarle area, Blackbeard, stopped in the gift shop, and so much more. Definitely stop in for a wonderful time, and if possible, please leave a donation for the museum.

This is a wonderfully kept and spacious museum with rotating exhibits that highlight the history of the area. We spent a couple hours wandering around and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was friendly and it wasn't very crowded on the weekday that we went. The surrounding area is also nice, with a big park across the street with a view of the waterfront. It's definitely a place you should check out if you're in the area!
