This weekend is your last chance to see the Porsche by Design exhibition at the N.C. Museum of Art. Don’t miss it!

Behind-the-scenes tours of the State Capitol in Raleigh, a free day at Tryon Palace in New Bern and a Civil War living history program at the CSS Neuse in Kinston are just a few of the opportunities for family fun you’ll find this weekend at our historic sites and museums.

The weekend fun starts Thursday, when the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh presents another installment in its Storytime in the Gallery series, and continues Friday when the N.C. Maritime Museum in Beaufort offers a program for preschoolers on dolphins and whales. Later Friday, the N.C. Museum of Art in Raleigh will put on a screening of On the Town in addition to more installments of its Art in the Evening and Friday Night Sound Bites series.

Saturday, the family fun continues in New Bern, where admission to most parts of Tryon Palace will be free, and in Raleigh where the State Capitol will offer a behind-the-scenes tour. Later that afternoon, the Museum of the Cape Fear in Fayetteville will present a program on African song, dance and storytelling, while Civil War costumed interpreters will bring the CSS Neuse in Kinston alive for a living history program and symposium on the Underwriter Expedition.
