History at your Fingertips
If you’re visiting Arlington Place, a trip to the new North Carolina History Center is a must on your ‘to do’ list. Located on the downtown New Bern waterfront, the NC History Center is anything but a stuffy museum and sets a new standard for the museum experience. History performances bring the past to life and multimedia displays invite participation. And New Bern, which just celebrated it’s 300th birthday, makes the ideal location for a place that celebrates the rich history and culture of our great state.
