Arts & Museums
A very unique museum and resource center that contains 19th century artifacts, as well as arts and crafts from Lumbee Indian tribes plus displays contemporary Indian arts and drafts that represent Native Americans all over North America. Major displays include an authentic log canoe and log cabin.
The science center is located in a one room schoolhouse and offers many hands-on exhibits and activities. The planetarium is located adjacent to the center and uses light, sound, and color to recreate the images of the universe.
Constructed in 1895, the renowned John Blue House is situated in the Lauringburg area of North Carolina. It offers a glimpse into the rural past of the state. The house features circular porches, nine fireplaces, and 12 exterior doors, of which each one has a stained glass pane. The house is surrounded by pecan trees coupled with a collection of structures that actively narrates stories of varied times of the region. The house has gained enormous historic value over the years, and was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
Located in a former railway express station that was built in 1908, this museum displays memorabilia relating to Lumberton and Robeson County plus features a rotating historic display that changes every two months, and fossils found in the nearby Lumber River.
