“A unique work-in-progress”

Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Any Outer Banks visitor should find something of interest in this specialized museum. A stone's throw from the Ocracoke ferry terminal, there is ample parking & admission is free (donations encouraged).

We had a wonderful time during our visit to the museum. The Civil War artifacts are especially wonderful.

This free museum is at the southern tip of Hatteras Island near the ferry to Ocracoke. It has a variety of interesting mini-exhibits on Outer Banks sea-faring history. These include shipwrecks, Billy Mitchell's role on Hatteras, the Island's role in the Civil War, and much more. The exhibit panels have a great deal of information, so there is much reading if you wish to be thorough!

Arrived in the early morning in the rain. This free attraction does not permit photos due to the fragile nature, but do not provide enough postcard options for those who want a memory inside the museum.

Not enough on shipwrecks, was confused on some of the exhibits since they were about life at sea and not shipwrecks. Really like the view of the work area where staff can be conserving items and the storage facility.

Did not see any staff walking around, nor standing at displays. Knowledgeable staff would lend to the museum.

This is a small museum that is most definitely NOT worth a special trip! Since it's called the "Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum" I expected it to be about shipwrecks ... there is scuba equipment, civil war stuff, bags of chips that washed up on shore, but not much ship wrecks ... at least it was free.
