  • Very interesting place. Wonderfull location and lots of very applicable historical info. Many food and retail options are steps away. And, parking is easy. Great little town.
  • Was good very informative, lots of reading, did have a periscope, was cool , but video was kinda boring, nice gift shop.
  • A fun place to visit and learn more about the history of this wonderful town.
  • Free to get in; they do take donations. Very good historical displays, including an actual periscope from a U.S. submarine. Worth the stop.
  • Stop by and have coffee across the street at Moore Street Market, then stroll though the displays and historical items at the Museum. Look through a WWII periscope at the Southport waterfront, including City Pier and Bald Head Island, about 6 miles away. Be sure to not miss the turtle exhibit and all things pirate! Great for kids of all ages - with a self-guided scavenger hunt they'll really enjoy! A great way to spend a hour or two - staff is very friendly and helpful.
