Exhibit Extended

The Museum of the Albemarle has extended the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom exhibit through July. The public can learn more about the Underground Railroad through two displays exhibited at the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City.

The displays are on loan from the NPS, a “Network to Freedom” display interprets the history, people and terms of the Underground Railroad. Developed by ECSU, a “Math of the GreatDismal Swamp” display focuses on the terrain and water quality of the Great Dismal Swamp. NASA’s Earth Science Education Office/The MUSPIN Office of Goddard Flight Center and ECSU funded this display.

Located at 501 S. Water Street, the Museum of the Albemarle is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information click here. Photo Credit: Museum of the Albemarle Photo by Pedro Beildeck.
