Fodor's Review

An exhibit about the infamous pirate Blackbeard includes artifacts recovered from the discovery of his flagship, Queen Anne's Revenge, near Beaufort Inlet. Other exhibits feature coastal culture and the state's rich marine-science history. You'll see seashells, fossils, duck decoys, and commercial fishing gear. Educational programs might include birding treks, sailing lessons, and history tours and there's a lively schedule of special events. You can also roam the library's extensive maritime collection. The associated Watercraft Center, across the street, has lectures and classes on boatbuilding and you can see various projects under construction by professional and amateur boatbuilders.
