Gather ‘round, all you artists, historians, pirates, animal lovers, environmentalists, thespians, anthropologists and those in between. Outer Banks museums capture various fields of interest to appeal to both visitors and locals. Some museums, like the Wright Brothers National Memorial, are great to visit on clear days when you can climb to the top of a point and overlook miles of the coast. Others are excellent solutions for rainy days when the ocean is rough and the sand muddy. Just pop by a museum or two to learn about the Graveyard of the Atlantic or the history of Native Americans on Hatteras Island. Whatever type of geography and topic you desire – oceanfront or marshland, art or climbing to the top of a lighthouse – Outer Banks museums will provide you with entertainment, activities and fun. Museums are also great to visit with families. Many offer activities just for kids, who can participate in interactive crafts and exhibits.
