Greensboro Historical Museum Reviews & Ratings
This was an amazing attraction to visit over the weekend when I was spending time with my grandma! Not only are there so many interesting things to see and facts to learn, a decent part of this museum is interactive. The museum itself is quite large and my grandma and I often found ourselves asking how they do not charge admission. The museum runs on donations and we forgot to donate before or after our visit but no worries because they make it super easy for you to donate online. I would 100% recommend this museum to anyone living in Greensboro or visiting Greensboro.
The exhibits here are very informative and cover the whole history of Greensboro. I got the chance to take a tour with one of the docents today, and the museum was even better. The docent was a wealth of knowledge, and their information expanded on what the exhibits said, and added another whole level to my understanding of Greensboro. I love that I learn something new every time I go here.
To be honest, I didn't expect much from this place. It doesn't look as big as it is! I was the only one there for HOURS and got to explore without the hassle of other people getting in the way. First time that's ever happened and it was AMAZING because I didn't feel the need to move on quickly from each display so that others could get in.
This is such a wonderful part of Greensboro. The exhibits are great and the little town area is wonderful for the kids to look around and discover the town's history.
I could stay here for 2 days and still not read/experience all of the information - truly chock-a-block with history. They do a very good job at transporting you through time to get the true feel of the 1800's. Fascinating history.
