  • The whole family always enjoys our visits there! A great sampling of all of the history of the local seafaring adventures of the past 100 plus years!  more »
  • We drove for quite awhile from Nags Head to visit this museum. I was really looking forward to it and I had told my grandson about the number of ships that had gone down off the coast of North Carolin...  more »
  • On our way to Ocracoke Island we found this museum while we were waiting for the ferry. The museum is free, but excepts donations. The exhibits were interesting and they have a nice little gift shop. ...  more »

  • This is a great little museum to go to while in the area, free and doesn't take much time. It has a lot of interesting artifacts and stories that go with them and you are sure to learn something new. It is free so don't expect the greatest museum of all time but it is still well worth the stop.
  • Nice little place, small museum. Free, asks for donations to stay open. Neat to see how the island evolved over time with weather and water. Wednesday's they do crafts with kids, they love it. Nice of them to do that!
  • Pretty nice little museum. It has a lobby area , an education room and one main museum room. If you're in the area I would definitely suggest stopping I wouldn't travel 100 miles to see it or anything but it's worth the stop. They do a little scavenger hunt sheet for kids to keep them occupied while you're reading the information. It's also free admission with the suggestion of the donation. Stop by and support the museum.
  • I was underwhelmed. The museum is free (donations encouraged) but even for free, I expected more. I thought maybe there would be information about pirate ships, ancient ships, ships sunk by storms and hurricanes. It is mostly about the USS Monitor from the Civil War and ships sunk by U-boats in WWII. There is a LOT of reading and very little hands-on demonstrations. I think most kids would be bored.
  • Interesting artifacts and good readings. Not enough history about pirates that would bring more people to visit!
