Museum of History & Museum of Natural Sciences - Raleigh, NC

OOPS! lol

semi-overcast 31 °F


Hi everyone! Today we were supposed to go to the History Museum in Raleigh. The History Museum and Science Museum are right beside each other and we walked into the Science Museum by mistake (we didn't realize it until the 3rd floor! We were thinking most of the museum was about how NC came to be through animals lol).

There were animals from all over NC. There were sea animals and land animals. There were animals that swim, fly, crawl, scamper and slither. There was even a dinosaur exhibit. There were whale skeletons and fish. There was a giant sloth's skeleton that looked 20 feet tall! There were birds, bugs, fish and lots of other animals. Oh! I almost forgot to tell you that one of my best friends came with me today too.

We also went to the History Museum and saw the Blackbeard Pirate Exhibit. There were weapons, artifacts, jewels, treasure, cannons and more!

I really had fun at the museums today. Tomorrow we are off to Bentonville Battlefield in Four Oaks!


Well, I don't have much to add to this one. Jessica pretty much said it all. We did have fun today even though our plans changed. It is a little embarassing that I was born and raised in Raleigh and didn't know which building was which :).

My favorite part of today was definately Knights of the Black Flag Exhibit at the History Museum. I've always liked pirate folklore and even have a souvenir Blackbeard cup from when I was Jessica's age from a visit to "The Lost Colony" play my grandparents took me to.

KIDS ARE FREE for this exhibit! Adults are only $5.00 and it is worth every penny. It runs until January, so PLEASE try to make out there. It was wonderful!
