Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts

North Carolina

Only accessible with combined admission to Old Salem’s other historic sites, this showpiece museum extends way beyond the local Moravian heritage to celebrate arts and crafts from the seven states of the early South. As well as paintings and prints, it’s especially strong on furniture, ceramics and woodwork.

Buying the 'two-stop' option grants admission to this and one other sight.
