Welcome to The Museum of The Albemarle!

Since its founding in 1967, the Museum of the Albemarle has been an exciting place to explore the local North Carolina history and history of the Albemarle region. The opening of the new facility in 2005 opened the door for exciting exhibits, programs, and events. The museum encourages visitors to discover the past; reflect on their own lives and their place in history; and preserve state, regional, and local history for future generations.
