Our museum first opened its doors in 1987 as 501 (c)(3) nonprofit committed to furthering knowledge and education about the history surrounding the Outer Banks and the nation's Native American tribes. Our site features a gallery showcasing artifacts from Native American tribes from the Outer Banks as well as from across the country. Onsite there are also nature trails that lead from the museum and explore acres of the the area's scenic maritime forest. Be sure to check out our gift shop during your visit where you'll find hand-made crafts and one-of-a-kind items.
