North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport
Located across from the waterfront in downtown Southport, N.C., the N.C. Maritime Museum at Southport helps tell the story of the North Carolina coast and its people.
The museum is at the intersection of the mighty Cape Fear River and the vast Atlantic Ocean. It shares tales of pirates and pillage, blockade running and riverfront archaeology, and other nautical adventures. Ongoing educational programs for children and adults about this area, which was a haven for blockade runners and also a pirate hideout, are available.
The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport is open Tuesday – Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is open to the public with free admission. Donations are always appreciated. For more information, visit www.ncmaritimemuseumsouthport.com.
