We were lucky to have a docent here on our visit, by the name of Josh, who added to our enjoyment of this museum by sharing his incredible knowledge and obvious enjoyment of history of the area. Ask to see one of the videos if you have the time.

A nice clean museum with a lady inside that grew up in the area. She knew everything! Interesting to see the pictures from the 40's

Great, friendly and welcoming staff in this very informative little museum which is a period cottage. The Hurricane Hazel exhibit was very interesting as well as the model buildings and charming furnishings. Bought a nice memoir/cookbook "Smidgens" and took a free aerial poster of Wrightsville. It's great to know the history of a place and this museum is an excellent and fun resource.

This is an absolute must do while in Wrightsville. Take a walk around the loop and stop in for a free tour. Small museum but very well run. A kudos to the immunity that supports it.

We came by on a Tuesday afternoon in May and were there for about an hour and 30 minutes. We really enjoyed our visit and will be back. We like that the museum is made from a 1909 Wrightsville Beach cottage. The cottage is furnished to look like it used to - furniture, clothes, etc. We got to see and touch the 1910 wool bathing suits, which was neat. We watched the PBS documentary about Lumina. It was interesting and I'm glad we watched it, but it was longer than we expected. Overall, I'd say this is a great place to visit to learn more about the history of Wrightsville.
