Book a Room

If you are traveling along I-95, Exit 95 makes the perfect stop for a visit to the Ava Gardner Museum. You may have seen the billboards up and down I-95, and now is the time to stop. Make it a full visit with more things to do in Smithfield.

Not only can you enjoy a tour of the Museum, you can explore the local boutiques and name-brand stores at our destination shopping center, the Carolina Premium Outlets, or head to our historic downtown business district for a delicious meal at one of our chef-driven restaurants.

Check out this directory for hotels located a short two-mile drive from the museum.
