Museum of the Albemarle reviews
Much larger and more exhibits than had been expected. One could spend hours here if you had the time. Not only exhibitions on local history but also ancient worldwide excavations currently on display! more »
Enjoyed this museum and learned a lot about the region, history and people who made this area what it is. The exhibits are well presented and very interesting. more »
Very nice staff and clean environment. Took my boys, 6.5 yrs old and 3.5 yrs old, walking through and a staff member came and answered all the questions they had. Love that they change some of the exhibits too!! Helps provide good history for the area and has a couple memorabilia from when my mother-in-law and husband were children. Makes it more personal and community based.
Beautiful location and performance venue for my niece & sister in law's recital! Lots of history & adorable gift shop. Clean restrooms always a plus!
