PAC is in the process of restoring the Elizabeth City Opera House for use as a gallery, offices, and performing center. Once a venue for vaudeville shows, the Opera House stage will provide a larger playhouse for Elizabeth City's Encore Players.

The Museum of the Albemarle, on Highway 17, South, interprets 400 years of local history. In 2005, the museum will move into its grand new building that dominates the Elizabeth City skyline.
