Every day at the Raleigh City Museum, visitors celebrate the history of our capital city in very personal ways.
Since the museum opened its doors in June 1993, it has been supported by the community through volunteerism, visitorship, and membership. Community support makes the connections between visitors and the city's past a reality. In particular, membership contributions make possible the museum's exhibit, education, and collections programs.
No matter their background, visitors find ways to connect with the city of Raleigh, its people, and its rich history. Whether remembering the Upstairs Restaurant or learning about Henry Mahler's 19th century silversmith shop for the first time, visitors find themselves tied to Raleigh - and have been doing so for the past nineteen years.
