We really enjoyed our time at this museum. The building is really old, very lovely and well-kept. The local history was really interesting, and they have done a great job with the displays. The pig on the porch was great. :)

Absolutely worthwhile. We came here out of boredom during a long rainy stretch and stayed here longer than we expected.

great place for a field trip with students as well as for adults. Had a great time and the students learned more about the county they live and play in.

This small museum of local history is making impressive strides in collecting and displaying the history of Wayne county, NC. It is housed in an old USO building, which is itself local history. This is a must-stop location for history buffs!
