Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in North Carolina, the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex is canceling this year’s Holiday Jubilee at the 1897 Poe House in order to protect the health and safety of staff and visitors. The Holiday Jubilee was originally scheduled for Dec. 6.
In a media release Museum staff said routine operations will remain open to visitors.

Tours are limited to 10 people at a time, and visitors must wear a cloth face mask and observe social distancing guidelines. The 1897 Poe House will be decorated for Christmas through Jan. 9, 2021.
The Museum of the Cape Fear is open for self-guided tours Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors must wear a cloth face mask and observe social distancing guidelines. Admission is free but donations are accepted.
