“Not bad and it's free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2010

I don't know that I would go out of the way to go to the Wayne County Museum, but if you are in or passing through Goldsboro, it is worth stopping. Interesting artifacts from Wayne County's history, and several displays detailing Goldsboro's role in the Civil War, in which the city played a secondary but important role because of the railroad. And there is no admission fee.
