Saturday at the Museum

January 13, 2008 Sarah Coggins

Today we went into downtown Raleigh to view the Mysteries of the Lost Colony exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History with family members. The exhibit ends Monday so there was a rather large crowd for it. We waited in line for an hour for our turn. Interesting exhibit though as it was a mix of set props from the Lost Colony production in Manteo, NC, and watercolors & engravings on loan from The British Museum. [Some of the artwork we viewed is shown on this site: Index of White Watercolors and De Bry Engravings.]

The photo is of me with a statue of Frederick Augustus Olds which stands in front of the museum. Per the plaque beside it, he founded the Hall of History in 1902 which is today’s NC Museum of History.
