Just For Kids!

Three young children learning about pirate ships from Emily Grant, museum educator

Though we're proud to offer educational experiences for North Carolinians of all ages, several of our learning-focused programs are geared specifically toward children.

At the Museum

Explore our exhibit galleries with Colonel Fred Olds, founder of the museum, using the Fred’s Finds activities. Or visit a number of our permanent exhibits and look for special objects on a Museum Gallery Hunt. Print out forms from the links below or pick up copies at the information desk. They’ll help you find some of the colonel’s favorite artifacts and get you thinking together.

At Home

While we'd love for you to come visit us in person, several our educational activities and resources can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home.
