Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Monday, Jan. 20, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

The museum is open! Drop in when you can and tour all our exhibits—including the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, Toy Boom! Toys from the 1950s and ’60s (which includes a rare example of Ideal’s Saralee doll and a G.I. Joe Action Soldier, one of the first mainstream toys produced as an African American), and the current lobby-case installation of Collecting Carolina (which includes a costume that was designed and worn by Dr. Baba Charles R. “Chuck” Davis and a possible identification tag used by John Gaskill, a soldier with the 1st North Carolina Colored Volunteers—later, the 35th US Colored Troops—during the Civil War).

Assistance with the SHOF gallery is provided by the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame Inc.; Toy Boom! is supported by CBS17, WNCN-TV, and funded by MOHA/museum members.
