In order to fully experience the World War I Exhibit, give yourself at least an hour to go through and read all the wonderful information and view the displays. With close to 500 artifacts, you’ll want to take your time and not miss anything.
This is a fantastic field trip if you have young ones learning about WWI, though be mindful of the subject matter before bringing children who may find aspects of the exhibition upsetting. The old adage is true, “War is hell.”
The WWI Exhibition at the NC Museum of History runs until early January of 2019 and is free. Week days are typically the least crowded which is great for maximizing your time and absorbing history. The museum is also featuring several First Friday Films to complement the exhibit and there’s also a selection of commemorative items in the museum gift shop.
