Overflowing with everything that makes Greensboro great
Sometimes bigger is better. With more than 17,000 square feet of stories, the Greensboro Historical Museum is bigger and better, making it the place to learn about Greensboro.
Beyond the walls of the museum, there is much more to see and do. Adjacent to the main museum is the Mary Lynn Richardson Park. Here visitors can enter the 18th and 19th century households of the historic Christian Isley House and Francis McNairy House, as well as the Hockett Blacksmith and Woodworking Shops and the First Presbyterian Church Cemetery. In walking distance, you’ll find shops, restaurants, the Greensboro Public Library, the Greensboro Children’s Museum and the art galleries of the Greensboro Cultural Center.
A short four miles from the main campus, we offer even more. The David and Rachel Caldwell Historical Center, located down the street from Friendly Shopping Center and next to the Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens and the Bog Garden, is also part of the museum. Programs and exhibitions at the Center chronicle the inspiring history of David Caldwell and his wife Rachel, as well as their contributions to local and national life prior to Greensboro’s founding in 1808.
