North Carolina Maritime Museum

The North Carolina Maritime Museum, in Beaufort, North Carolina, documents, collects, preserves, and researches the maritime history—and its corollary natural history—of coastal North Carolina, for the purpose of interpreting this history through educational services and exhibits, and passing intact its material culture to future generations. All of the museum’s programs and exhibits, both general and specialized, interpret the state’s cultural maritime history and offer a larger national perspective on coastal environment and barrier island ecology. The museum also sponsors traditional and classical music concerts, participates in the Beaufort Music Festival, and in the Beaufort Old Homes Tour.
