Collections Management

The Division of State History Museums collects and preserves artifacts and other historical materials relating to the history and heritage of North Carolina in a local, regional, national, and international context to assist people in understanding how the past influences the present. The division interprets the state’s history through exhibitions, educational programs, and publications available to the visitor on-site or through distance-learning technologies.

Outgoing Loans

Thank you for your interest in the artifact collection at the North Carolina Museum of History. Currently there is a pause on outgoing loans for the duration of the transformation of our space. We look forward to sharing the collection again once the museum reopens. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to working with you in the future!
