Great museum on Plymouth waterfront, saw the listing on town website so stopped in before heading back home. We were impressed with all the local artifacts from "war between states" and enjoyed listening to several stories from the gentleman volunteer working there that day. Really liked that everything was numbered so we knew exactly what we were looking at, lots... More

I always enjoy going in the museum to see the history of Washington County. There is a handmade train in there that my Great Uncle made. I enjoy going with my family from out of town.

It only takes about an hour to visit the museum and waterfront and it's well worth the visit. Nominal entrance fee, lots of artifacts, friendly knowledgeable employees. Great place to take a break and stretch your legs.

Well worth the visit! Very minimal entrance fee to a great museum. They have been doing a bunch of renovating and rearranging and their hard work really pays off. Great flow to learn the history of the Albermarle. Tons of artifacts and a great group of folks up front who can answer questions about the area. Outside there is an... More

Located in the quaint downtown region of Plymouth on the Roanoke River, the Port O'Plymouth Museum is loaded with artifacts and includes a replica of the Iron Clad boat used in one of the most important Civil War battles. There is a reenactment here around April 15th each year as well. Take time to meet Mayor Brian Roth if you... More

Very quaint little place to stroll around inside and out. Nice area to stretch your legs. Walk around the neighborhood and look at the old graveyard. Beautiful old Magnolia tree's and old tombstones. Picnic area also. Great to see old time history at its best.

We visited the Port of Plymouth Museum with a group of travelers on a 2 day pirate/civil war trip in N. Carolina. This museum is jam packed with artifacts and information about the role of Plymouth and the Ram Albemarle in the later months of the Civil War. We were especially impressed by Jimmy Hardison, a local volunteer and the... More

I visited Port O'Plymouth museum on a short visit through Plymouth this past weekend and had a great time! It's a small Civil War museum with a homey feel, several rooms of themed artifacts and some interpretative panels. While I was there, a few museum volunteers were working on the Ironclad boat replica on the Roanoke River and I had... More

With in easy walking distance you can visit the Roanoke River Lighthouse as well as the Maritime Museum. The Wildlife Museum was closed. Check your computer for hours for... More

Visited with a Civil War buff and he really enjoyed the exhibits as well as the working model of an iron clad. Be sure to watch the video about the iron clad recreation - very fun.
