  • This is Ocracoke's history museum. Excellent way to learn all about the island's past and present. Staffed by locals who can relate first hand experiences as well as knowledge about the rich history of Ocracoke. Highly recommended - especially the ghost tours.
  • Great little museum. An old home, this place gives a nice, but brief history of the island. A must see! Donations are highly encouraged, but there is no charge.
  • Three stars are just not enough - because there is a lot to appreciate about what they have put together. Park in the lot across from it and plan to spend maybe an hour, as it does not take long to go through it.
  • Interesting place to visit, worth checking out, but not a lot to do. Might spend an hour there.
  • I had no idea about the Irish influence here!
