Take A Glamorous Stroll Down Memory Lane At The Museum For Ava Gardner, North Carolina’s Hollywood Sweetheart
North Carolina’s relationship to Hollywood’s big names includes modern-day legends as well as those from a more classic era in movies. And while, here and there, museums and tributes to some of them can be found in the Tar Heel State, they are few and far between. One such place is a terrific museum in Smithfield that’s dedicated to Ava Gardner, one of North Carolina’s Hollywood sweethearts.
Admission is $8, $10, or $12, depending upon your age. Kids under the age of six get in free. Learn more about the Ava Gardner Museum from its official website. And discover a museum featuring another legendary North Carolina-born actor at the Andy Griffith Museum in Mt Airy!
