But there are also a few titles that come up again and again as the best worst movies.&nbsp; Critics argue between “The Room,” “Troll 2,” and “Plan 9 from Outer Space,” but that doesn’t mean these so-called bad films don’t have huge fan followings.

The department's Historical Society has gathered artifacts and photos dating back to the Civil War era. Battalion Chief Alan Walters has served at the Raleigh Fire Department for 31 years. He says the museum shows the fire department has changed since it was founded in 1819, but the firefighters have not.

The red wolf is extremely rare. There’re only about 300 estimated to be alive today. 2 of them are at the museum. And keepers have been excited the past few weeks because the female wolf has changed her behavior and and is looking a bit chubbie.
