This museum is famous for holding what most experts agree are relics from the wreck of Blackbeard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, but that's only the beginning. This interactive museum is a must for families and for anyone interested in grasping coastal North Carolina's salty past.

Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The museum showcases 5,000 shells from 100 countries. If you're an avid sheller and you start to get itchy fingers, sneak over to the giant clam stuffed with smaller clamshells, by the staircase. You're free to take one of these smaller shells home as a souvenir.
  • Be sure to check out the moving displays honoring members of the heroic old United States Life-Saving Service.
  • My favorite is the sealable 1890s floating car, used for ferrying passengers off of sinking ships.
