We got to the museum about 45 minutes before closing. Mistake. There is much more to see in this museum. It's tastefully done. The folks at the museum are incredibly friendly. The museum gives a good history of Greensboro and the surrounding area.

I'd been to events on the main floor of the Historical Museum, but had never explored the upper floors. There is a treasure trove of information and great exhibits. Extremely enjoyable and enlightening.
