The Story of North Carolina 360˚ Virtual Tour

About the Virtual Tour

Can’t make it to the museum in person? Check out this 360˚ tour of our largest exhibit! Click on the large white circles to move through the space, and use your mouse or your arrow keys to maneuver around. You can view full screen, zoom in, and spin around, too. Be sure to keep an eye out for some of our staff. They’re waiting throughout the exhibit to introduce you to new sections as you “stroll” through.


The North Carolina Museum of History Foundation received funding for these virtual tours in an NC CARES: Humanities Relief Grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council,; funding for NC CARES was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan.
