  • A hidden treasure.
  • This may be the only place on the planet where you pay admission that covers you for the whole week! There is so much to see that we took advantage of the free return admission and came back again. GREAT collection. We saw Indian artifacts that we had never seen before. Beautifully displayed with obvious love and respect for the culture. We were really surprised!!!
  • This small museum is run by a husband and wife team, both retired educators. Carl Bornfriend knows his stuff and is an amazing man to chat with. This is his life long collection, and he has taught and worked among two different Native American Tribes. The Delaware and the Hopi- in fact you get to make a wish on a gift from the Hopi to Mr. Bornfriend - a real kiva drum. Pretty cool. Some things need more tags and lighting but what blew my mind in talking with Joyce Bornfriend was that this tiny gem was put together by them without Federal, State or local funds. That they accomplished this much on retired teacher salaries is amazing, imagine what they could do if they got some real donations!
  • I visit Cape Hatteras twice a year and have been doing so for over 15 years. I visit the Museum everytime I visit. I keep returning because of the staff, the owners Carl and Joyce Bornfriend and the content of the museum. If you want a state of the art museum go to Raleigh or Washington DC. The Frisco Native American Museum has survived hurricans and countless nor'easters. There have been times when the floor of the building was covered in a foot of water but the Museum and Carl and Joyce take it all in stride. If you decide to stop and take a look-see you will see artifacts and displays you won't see anywhere else. And you will find a loving spirit inside, that I promise, will encourage a return visit the next time you visit the Island.
  • You just missed it. You know that sign that said Native American Museum thats next to the post office in Frisco. I know you've been in a bunch of shops selling junk. Wait your all wrong, this is a life long collection of native american artifacts collected by a most amazing man and his wife. Go back and spent some time with Carl and Joyce Bornfriend, and your life will be changed forever. I know, they did it to me. Walk the trail and see examples of native vegetation. Spend a little time in the gift shop and see some beautiful native crafts. Convinced--then turn around and be ready for an educational experiece, and meet two fantastic people continuing a life time of education. You wont be sorry, and where else can the kids bang a drum.
