Greensboro Historical Museum

Explore the history of Greensboro with this museum’s exhibits. Hear stories of past generations of Greensboro residents, see artifacts, and walk a replica of the town as it was in the early 1900’s. School trips to the museum can teach students about the past with primary sources and interactive stations, like the blacksmith shop and quilting station. Groups unable to visit can rent one of the museum’s many Education Trunks, an “exhibit in a box” that brings to life different pieces of history and culture - everything from folk toys and the Civil Rights movement, to herbs, international cultures, music, and colonial crafts.
