The Country Doctor Museum is truly a treasure. I’ve driven past the sign to this place for years and finally got the opportunity to stop and visit. I wish I had been years ago … but glad I stopped today.
This is a gem of a museum! Tons of artifacts and info presented in a very digestible format through engaging docents and easily readable signs. Great curation – they feature a number of doctors from ENC (including black doctors) and have a well-balanced historical perspective. I look forward to coming back!
An excellent museum with extremely knowledgeable staff. A great example of how to turn a small collection into an informative (and fun) experience. You’ll be treated to a great tour that includes a lesson in 19th century pill manufacturing and getting to see a mid-20th century iron lung. A really fantastic way to spend an afternoon…
This is a great little hidden gem. My wife and I have passed the sign on Hwy 264 many times and finally decided to stop today. We’re glad we did …
Really enjoyed our Homeschool field trip to the museum! The tour was very interesting and informative and they even had a hands on activity for us at the end. Thank you!!
Absolute highlight of the trip, super interesting place, and Lizzie was an epic tour guide, very knowledgeable and fun.
