Cape Fear Museum’s Photo Collection Is Now Available Online

Cape Fear (North Carolina) Museum of History and Science’s photographic collection is now available online to anybody for viewing.

Cape Fear Museum’s collection of more than 57,000 objects, paper documents, and photographs sheds light on the history, science, and cultures of the Lower Cape Fear. This online catalog provides access to the Museum’s photograph collection, consisting of more than 15,000 images. This catalog will continue to grow as the Museum collects additional photographs.

The museum worked with Rediscovery Software to create a database of the museum’s photo collection of over 15,000 images. After 20 months of work, the photos also feature tags and ways to search them via various filters.

You can access the collection at https://capefearmuseum.rediscoverysoftware.com/Mhomed.aspx?dir=Permanent%20Collection.
