The Tar Heel state is rich in history, heritage and culture and has a vast collection of museums to showcase these things. Here we count down our top 5 museum's in North Carolina's capital.
#5: Artspace (artspacenc.org)
From their website -- Artspace inspires creativity by engaging the community in the visual arts process. Artspace is a dynamic studio environment of established and emerging artists and a center for hands-on arts education and nationally acclaimed exhibitions. Artspace is Raleigh’s visual art center for creation and interaction.
#4: Marble Kids Museum (www.marbleskidsmuseum.org)
From their website -- Marbles Kids Museum opened our doors on September 29, 2007 to kids and kids-at-heart! The crowd was wowed when we unveiled our new name and new exhibits after a suspenseful 24-day transformation that followed the merger of Exploris and Playspace. Opening Day was a super sensation. Why Marbles? A wall that wraps around the museum is filled with more than one million marbles that light up at night. And Marbles is a nickname for brains. At Marbles Kids Museum, kids are encouraged to use their marbles - learning new things through imagination, discovery and play.
