We've been many times over the past few years and learned something new each time. It's free and an interesting way to spend a few hours.

Nice, clean, not too crowded. Lots of beach to see and explore. Lovely town it is in, and the aquarium is lovely.

This museum has several really good exhibits specifically a lighted map which displays the different stages of the Battle of Fort Fisher which signaled the beginning of the end if the civil war. Many outside trails with great views.

Learn more about the end of the civil war and how the fort was such a major part of the conflict. Museum is well done. Wonderful grounds to walk on and how it might of been back in the day.
