Founded in 1898, Cape Fear Museum of History and Science is a melange of culture, history and science. With each passing year, it achieves further success and scales new heights. What started off as a one-room establishment has now culminated into a renowned organization with almost 50,000 objects on display. The museum does not restrict itself on merely showcasing collections, but also directs efforts towards study of the objects and enhancing the knowledge of its visitors.
