Museums in the Triangle
The Triangle Region of North Carolina is rich with area museums in Raleigh, the State Capital, heritage sites in Durham, science and sports museums in Chapel Hill and visitors will find many options in JoCo, too! Johnston County is located just 30 minutes east of the Research Triangle Park Region along US HWY 70 and Interstate 40.
We invite your family to explore the Civil War history at Bentonville Battlefield, our agritourism heritage at the Tobacco Farm Life Museum or our connection to Hollywood, at the Ava Gardner Museum located in Downtown Smithfield. What a great field trip or day trip to see what lies outside the Triangle, just minutes away.
We have put together several fun Day Trip itineraries to help visitors plan a great day in JoCo!
