The Cherry Hospital Museum is a small museum in Goldsboro, North Carolina focused on telling the tale of the beginnings of the Cherry Hospital. The hospital was originally opened in 1880 as the North Carolina Asylum for the Colored Insane, as a mental health facility for the African American population in other words.

The Cherry Hospital Museum chronicles the early days of the Cherry Hospital. From its opening in the late 1800s, it has served the entire state as its black-only mental health institution until the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is why it has also been embedded with a great deal of history.

The Cherry Hospital still operates as a state health facility today despite its many struggles.
