Steeped in Island History and located on the south end of Topsail Island, this museum has it all; from Pirates to the threshold of modern space technology!! Exhibits include: Operation Bumblebee, Camp Davis, Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASP), Pirates, Island wonders, and an international shell collection you have to see to believe! Discover the interactive children's area and find your own sharks tooth in the outdoor fossil dig located behind the Talos missile display.

A really nice small museum of local history and lots of different military info. Some older videos to watch and several displays to look at. A nice play area for kids. We stop here most years when we stay on the island.
