  • This is a great stop near the ferry for Ocracoke. Plenty of information and can't beat free price. However, it's not very interesting for young children and is so small. It wasn't worth going out of our way to visit.
  • Great place to see many shipwreck artifacts and learn about civil war history you never learned in school. They also have an German enigma machine found in a sunken U-boat from WWII!
  • A great place to get the history of the area and to see what they have pulled up from the bottom of the ocean from wrecks as they are working to clean and preserve them. I always stop for the gift shop, which has a lot of great gifts for everyone. It is not your typical T-Shirt/Wings type of shop but more decorations and books.
  • Cool exterior on the building. Some fun exhibits, such as a collection of old scuba gear and artifacts from a German U-boat, including pieces of an enigma machine. I also liked the history of the Frenel lighthouse lens. Can’t argue with free entry.
  • Neat place to visit. Very informative.
