Explore Global Cultures

Discover North Carolina’s only museum dedicated to the study of global cultures.  Artifacts from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania illustrate the story of humanity past and present.  Learn about people from around the world through their everyday objects, ceremonial artifacts, and visual arts.
