  • This attraction is centered on ship wrecks near the Outer Banks. The organization of exhibits is a little disjointed but if you try you can make sense of it. The Titanic seems a little out of place...  more »
  • How many shipwrecks are in the waters around Cape Hatteras? 500? 5,000? Still don't know. There is no overall narrative, just disjointed exhibits, badly presented. The panels will have you...  more »
  • Honestly. Not my cup of tea. There are some cool relics there but I don't feel like it's worth the price and it's pretty small there. Main lobby then one room with exhibits, mostly from queen Anne. I was super excited but left mildly disappointed. If you're super into Queen Anne's boat you will love this.
  • Definitely worth the visit. FREE admission, lots of history and information. Unique exhibit. I'd recommend donated a couple of dollars in their donation box so they can keep it open and add more to the museum!
