The Museums of Fuquay-Varina

A treasure for the area! An inspiration for others!


BlueStarLogo1800The Fuquay-Varina Museums have been designated as one of the 1800 Blue Star Museums across the United States. Guided tours will be provided at no charge to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Blue Star Museums is collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and more than 1800 museums across America.


The Fuquay-Varina Museums Complex consists of three museums: The First Fuquay Post Office, the "Squire" Ballentine Schoolhouse, and the Centennial Museum.

Docents are on duty to provide tours during the following times:

  • Wednesdays 1pm to 4pm
  • Festival Days 10am to 4pm

Tours may be arranged for groups by appointment. Please use our Contact form to request a tour.

The museums are located one block off Main Street at 131 South Fuquay Avenue and are easily accessed with handicap facilities. When visiting the museums, please start at the Centennial Museum so that a docent can guide you on your tour. The post office and school are not typically staffed but a docent from the Centennial Museum will gladly provide access to the buildings and answer any questions you may have.

Lunch can be arranged at several places in Fuquay-Varina. Contact the volunteer director for suggestions and arrangements which are complimentary to your tour group or suited to your needs. Senior tours  work best with a visit to the museums, followed by lunch, and a step-on tour with a docent on your mini bus or van during the afternoon.

Visitors may also explore the two historic districts of Varina and Fuquay and visit the delightfully landscaped Fuquay Mineral Springs.

Free admission!   Parking available!   A good picnic site!   Quaint Shops!   Good food!

Come spend the day in Fuquay-Varina!
