  • Very nice historical site run by a non-profit. Manned and run by volunteers who do a great job. Nice videos about the history of the life saving service. Seeing the rescue boat and equipment was fascinating. They have buildings on site showing what life was like during the period 1911 - 1954. Educational and well worth a visit!
  • A must see while on Hatteras Island. The narrator was excellent and one of the employees Dinah made it so special for my grandchildren. It was a very interesting and well put together presentation.
