More than 2,000 shipwrecks sunk off the Coast of North Carolina in what’s called the Graveyard of the Atlantic. With all that history floating around, it was only natural to build a museum to honor and preserve the maritime culture of the Outer Banks. A state-of-the-art structure, the year round museum houses and displays artifacts, and presents a variety of exhibits and interprets the rich maritime culture that includes war, piracy, ghost ships and more. Artifacts include thoseex from the USS Monitor, which sank 16 miles off the Hatteras coast. The lobby features the stunning and original, 1854, First Order Lens from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Current hibits include those on piracy and the Civil War on Hatteras Island.
Visitors can enjoy a fully relaxing and elevated experienced while staying in the heart of laid-back Hatteras Island with an extended stay at the Cape Hatteras Bed and Breakfast. Located in Buxton, and close to a wealth of local attractions (including the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Cape Point, which are both just a mile or so away), this charming B&B has all the comforts of home and then some, and a stellar locale that accentuates its welcoming, coastal atmosphere.
