Governor Proclaims North Carolina Museums Week 2020


Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed June 1-7, 2020, as "Museum Week" in North Carolina to highlight the meaningful impact museums have on North Carolina residents, tourism and the economy, and their communities.

North Carolina Museum Week is a celebration of North Carolina museums. Activities during the week will raise awareness of North Carolina museums as centers of education, community anchors, economic engines, stewards of culture and history, and more.

This year’s activities will be virtual experiences while museums adhere to North Carolina’s Safer At Home order. The North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources has created numerous opportunities to explore museums, zoos, aquariums and historic sites in the state through NCLearn@Home
