  • Everyone was friendly. It's a free spot with a self guided tour. I enjoyed learning more history about the island here. A must stop place.
  • Lighthouses was nice. There is a nice walk out back too.
  • 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.
  • A nice little museum on a truly magical island. Helpful employees and lots of history abound.
