  • Pretty cool. Had a Safe Haven movie memorabilia.
  • Very nice. Love this small southern town.
  • Found everything very interesting, especially the movies and TV shows filmed here.
  • Great small museum, very interesting information including a room devoted to the movies and TV shows filmed in the area.
  • Whether it's your first visit to the Southport area or a frequent traveler to these parts, you owe it to yourself to learn more about this quaint fishing village, small town ambiance/friendliness, and all Southport has to offer. The Museum is a good starting point. And, while still on foot be sure to enjoy the view of the bay, a walk on the fishing pier and some other great sights and the food of the lower Cape Fear River. We've been coming to Southport since October, 1995.
