Greensboro Science Center

The Natural Science Center of Greensboro takes attendees through worlds once inhabited by dinosaurs with 36-foot (10 meters) tall T-Rex models, as well as places to learn about the natural earth like the Gem and Mineral Gallery. There are also aquatic labs where everyone can pet and get to know more about snakes, amphibians and other sea-creatures. A trip to this center and all the attractions within is an experience that all members of the family can enjoy.

Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

The ground where the Battle for Guilford Courthouse was waged, this national military park is a solemn commemoration of the soldiers and militia who valiantly braved the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution. Back during the Revolutionary War, the battle for Guilford Courthouse was fought, with Major General Nathanael Greene and his men trying to defend the land. Complete with a tapestry of exhibits, monuments and dense forests, the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is truly an indelible chapter marking the pages of America's history.

International Civil Rights Center & Museum

The goal and lasting mission of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum is to educate future generations and also not let anyone forget Greensboro's as well as the nation's struggle for Civil Rights. Everything that began with the sit-in protest of the Woolworth-lunch counter 1960 by four young North Carolina A&T State College students and every battle in-between is chronicled inside these walls. This is truly an inspiring monument to chronicling the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

Greensboro History Museum

Whether a student, a researcher or just someone wanting to know a little something more about the long and rich history of Greensboro and Guilford Counties, the Greensboro History Museum is the place to be. Notable figures the museum covers include, among others, former Governor John Motley Morehead, O. Henry and David Caldwell. Exhibitions here are both of the permanent kind as well as those that are held for only a limited time.

Blandwood Mansion

What was once home to North Carolina Governor John Motley Morehead is now a National Historical Landmark and tourist attraction. The building's history began even before the founding of the city with it being built in 1795, then in 1844 architect Alexander Jackson Davis began a prototype Italianate style villa for the governor and eventually finished in 1846. It is one of the oldest standing Italianate structures in all of the United States. Tours are early morning and afternoons from Tuesday through Sunday.

O. Henry Statues

William Sydney Porter, better known as O. Henry, is Greensboro's best known and most celebrated writer. His hometown has honored him with this impressive three-piece statue. Located on a prominent downtown corner, the bronze statue features a sculpture of the author, a large book of his stories and even a depiction of his small dog. There is no twist ending here, just a great place to snap a picture in front of one of Greensboro's favorite sons.
