This a real "must do" in Raleigh. The museum is free and you'll learn many things go about the civil war. Moreover there are some different exhibitions which change very often. Get there and you'll not regret it

It was an amazing experience, the exhibits we're so captivating. Before I knew it I was there for 3 hours and didn't even realize it. I took lots of photos to remember it for years to come.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and spent about two hours touring the various galleries in both the East and West Buildings. We also walked a bit outside on the trails. If we lived in Raleigh, we'd probably come by often to walk our dog on...More

not, necessarily child geared, no. It is more of an adult, quiet space, art museum. Unless your child is the quiet, reserved artsy type. However, the outside campus is definitely child friendly, with a long walking path... More
