Who we are

For more than six decades, the Orange County Historical Museum has worked to bring history and people together.

  The generosity of museum founders and supporters nurtured that vision and today the museum boasts an exceptional collection of historically significant objects. We are proud to be a valuable resource for Orange County residents and a tourist destination for visitors to Hillsborough and Orange County.    


Closed for the Holidays

The museum will be closed to the public over the holiday season, December 16, 2017 – January 15, 2018.  We will take this time to update exhibitions and plan the schedule for 2018. Thank you for supporting the Orange County Historical Museum!
