  • Located in the (ca.1909) Myers cottage,you get a feel for how life was lived in a typical summer cottage in Wrightsville Beach. The kitchen,living room,bedroom and bath, though small and simple are...  more »
  • This is a nice place to stop by while at the outer banks. Some members of the family can spend a longer time among the exhibits than others depending on age and level of interest.  more »
  • Cute little museum! Outside there’s a place to look for shark teeth. There’s a model of what the beach used to look like which the kids really like to look at. There’s lots of different shells for kids to see as well. Really cool to hear about the history of WB and the train.
  • I have always wanted to stop here for the last 4 years and we seem to be in such a hurry. Last time I did and took several hours to enjoy the activities being staged in the parking lot. It seems the local artists actually have a competitive event and a prosperous one the middle of October where they sell their works they create in a few days. I was about asking for historical information and what a treasure trove that turned out to be. A dear lady, a local, who grew up here knows everything you should know about the place through the ages. I was taken somewhere in time with her assistance that was simple and elegant and troubling. I hope to see her again this year when I return that same middle of the month time frame in October. It is where you can find post cards as many as you can write for the cost of a small or generous donation (your preference). There is no limit on the kindness or the information you take with you when you leave. Prepare to be amazed and realize you are about to decide to adjust your pace to that of the community.
