Museum Of The Cape Fear Historical Complex Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting complex and good neighbors! Very nice staff and you owe it to yourself to take a tour and with your family if you have one. And take a tour of St Michael's Church right across the street. It's a unique building you will enjoy as well.
The museum and house are very well kept. Ruth was great at explaining everything during the tour. You can learn a lot about how people used to live during that time. The museum is free and they accept donations. The museum has a cute store and great prices to get souvenirs.
I had some time to kill, and the museum complex exceeded my expectations. The admission is free, and I was more than happy to donate. This is a great museum for the area, but the real gem is the tour in the Victorian house of EA Poe. This is not THE Edgar Allan Poe whom is the famous writer, but rather someone from the area whom was progressive that sent his six daughters to college. Highly recommend the Poe tour that makes this place shine.
the price is right (free!) but they do take donations. If you do just the museum, you will like spend less than an hour there...even reading every sign. The Pope House tour is a must as it is beautifully restored and preserved and the guide seems to know every detail of the Pope family and house's history.
Pics of the museum and the Edgar Allen Poe house nextdoor.with my two cousins and my grandchild we had a great time and Wilma was a wonderful tour guide
