  • Awesome little museum! Plenty for little hands to touch and play with. The touch tank is fun! Learning more about coastal NC is a bonus. A little over priced, but definitely worth a visit. Active military and vets get in free :)
  • This was a cozy and inclusive museum, and had something for both kids and adults. Several of the exhibits we're unique to North Carolina and gave it a local feel. My kids were really taken in to the scavenger hunt, which likely engaged them in exhibits they might not have been otherwise. The touch tank was the highlight for my kids.
  • This is my second time visiting this museum. First visit was many years ago when the kids were younger (9 and under). This time they were 13-19. This museum is much better for young kids, although my crew did enjoy the touch tank! It’s a little out-dated and couple of the activities weren’t working. I thought it was a little pricey for the quality. But it IS local and got the kids out of the house.
  • Very well done for a small community. Lots of different things to see relating to the ocean.
  • We enjoyed our visit to this coastal museum. Very educational and very good displays. Interactive displays for children. Good displays about ocean life and wildlife but I particularly enjoyed the birds. Will probably go back and take guests.
