Furniture Discovery Center

Learn how furniture is designed and built. Discover how wood veneers are made and used in the production of furniture. See how textiles are designed and made into upholstered furniture. From the type of lumber used, to trying out tools on the assembly line, you will have fun learning everything you ever wanted to know about furniture and how it is made.


Peterson Doll and Miniature Museum

Considered by many to be one of the foremost collections of its kind in the country, this fascinating museum features over 1,700 dolls and miniatures from all over the world! Highlighting many one-of-a-kind pieces and complete collections, such as the Shirley Temple exhibit, this is a must see for enthusiasts and the curious alike.


Come let us show you how it all began...

At Old Salem, one of the most authentic and inviting living history towns in the United States - costumed interpreters carry on the work of European and African American Moravians in the backcountry church town and trading center of Salem. Every day, in all seasons of the year, the town comes to life with the household activities and trades common two hundred years ago. Residents enjoyed one of the first public water systems, one of the first fire departments, and one of the first schools for girls in America. Enjoy the beautiful gardens - Visit the Winkler Bakery and take home a very special treat, baked in the wood-fired beehive oven.

MESDA - in Old Salem
The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) is the only museum dedicated to exhibiting and researching the regional decorative arts of the early South. With more than twenty period rooms and six galleries, MESDA showcases the furniture, paintings, textiles, ceramics, silver, and other metal wares made and used in Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee through 1820.

The Old Salem Toy Museum

The Toy Museum is a 1700-year survey of toys dating from 225 A.D. to 1925 A.D., presented in an informative and exciting format -- and places in context those toys that were owned and used by the Moravians that settled Salem, North Carolina (1766-1850s). The Toy Museum appeals to "kids" of every age. It is also regarded by collectors as one the most prestigious antique toy collections in the world.A centerpiece of the new museum are the toys owned by Moravian children of Piedmont North Carolina. These are a rare regional survival, and include a unique collection of wooden German toys and locally made dolls cherished by generations of Salem residents.

..
Reynolda House, Museum of American Art

Browse in the 1917 estate of industrialist R.J. Reynolds which contains original furnishings, including the only unaltered Acolian residence organ still in its original site, handsome family clothing dating from 1905, and charming children's toys. The sixty-four-room home had some furniture added in the 1930's when a second generation moved in and built elaborate recreational facilities in the basement. The extensive art collection, dating from 1755 to the present, now housed in this National Historic Property, is considered to be the best selection of American art south of Washington DC. Visit the beautiful formal gardens and the estate's original outbuildings, now converted to specialty shops, and lunch in historic Reynolda Village. The Village is now the home of many shops, restaurants, and offices. The beautifully maintained grounds are open 365 days of the year. Take time to explore the
historic significance and charm. Come visit...and enjoy!


Korner's Folly - Kernersville, NC
The Strangest House in the World! The Folly defies simple description. It is said that no two doorways are exactly alike. It has 20 fireplaces of differing designs. Its cubbyholes and trap doors fascinate; its pivoting "windows" and other openings anchor a unique air distribution system. Its murals and artworks add a sense of fancy. Children-sized rooms give way to an airy elegant, high-ceilinged Receptions Room. A former stable becomes a library and a sewing room. Superlatives fail - from tile to woodwork, brick to decorative murals and frescos by German master Caesar Much, the Folly is truly like no other home in the world. And it is one whose charms and enchantments deserve to be shared with generations yet to come.
