The Tobacco Farm Life Museum has been preserving the history and cultural heritage of eastern North Carolina farm life for more than 30 years. The museum has grown into an internationally recognized and accredited museum and today continues to interpret and present this important rural legacy to the public.

Step back in time to a turn-of-the-century homestead, including a restored house and detached kitchen, smokehouse, log tobacco barn, and even an outhouse. The 6,000-square-foot museum features both permanent and rotating exhibits on farm life, southern medicine, domestic skills, rural social life, and farm artifacts. The general tour of the Museum includes a 15-minute film, a self-guided tour of the gallery and 8 buildings on site. Museum suggests 1.5-2 hours to tour the grounds.

Heritage events are held throughout the year and school group programs are available.
