Activity Overview

Things to Do

  • Attend their Concert at the Courthouse events - where you can watch a concert free of charge!
  • See the permanent and rotating exhibits in the museum. The permanent exhibit features the Hoffman Hotel, a hotel built in 1852, and shows you what the hotel rooms are like in those days. Also shows carriages (yes, of the horse & carriage kind) used before automobiles were widespread.
  • Attend some of their educational programs - there's one for every age group: toddlers, kids/tweens/teens (summer camp & scouts), and even for adults. Check their website for details and exact dates of the programs.
  • Window shop at their gift shop or bring home souvenirs from your trip.
  • Join in a tour of the Dallas (North Carolina) Historic District - see the historic buildings and learn more about their history.
  • Become a member of the museum - not only do you get the perks, you get to help the museum through your donation too.
