I have to disclose first that I am not a big maritime type person, I can't really handle boats that well....sea-sickness. But for someone who doesn't enjoy boating or the open seas that much, I can really appreciate the time and attention to detail they put into this museum. It's free to get in, you will need to set-aside about 1-2 hours if you plan on reading and seeing everything. It's not that large, but there is a lot to look at. One of the main attractions is the Blackbeard Pirate section, where they have artifacts from Queen Anne's Revenge on display. This tends to be a lot more crowded section of the museum, so do plan on that. However, the rest of the museum is dedicated, of course, to the history of the maritime which is very prevalent down there. Enjoy walking around and looking at old scale-model boats, historical information on the coast line, and overall a great history lesson on everything maritime.
