For more than 50 years, the Colburn Museum has fostered an appreciation for the Earth and its resources and environments through its exhibits, educational programming, and the care of its collection. A stunning gem and mineral collection, permanent and rotating exhibits, and a warm and professional staff make each visit a new learning experience.
This year we are hosting a segment of the NC Science Festival! The North Carolina Science Festival is a multi-day celebration showcasing science and technology. The Festival highlights the educational, cultural and financial impact of science in our state. Through hands-on activities, science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits and performances, the Festival engages a wide range of public audiences while inspiring future generations.
