Current Special Exhibit

1. Date Night Header.png

Although the term "Date Night" is relatively new, the concept is old.

A date night is a pre-planned evening
to establish a new relationship or add some sparkle to an old one.

Date Nights are Special.

This exhibit focuses on the 20th century.

It presents the places people went on dates, what they wore, ate, listened to, and did
(G-rated versions only).

Come see how date nights have changed in Orange County, NC
