This is a small but really well done maritime museum, enjoyable for adults and kids. The museum highlights an archeological find of pirate Blackbeard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge.

It had been a while since I had visited the Museum. It has really expanded it's overall space and seems to continued to expand their history of Blackbeard. It was a great visited!!

Small but very interesting museum in the lovely historic town of Beaufort NC. Staff was very friendly. Great section on Blackbeard, who had a home not too far from there. It is the oldest home in Beaufort. Great family activity or for anyone really.

It's a small indoor museum, I did not see any dogs when we were there. I'm thinking it would not be appropriate to bring dogs in.
