The mission of the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is to collect, care for, exhibit, and interpret items that serve to illustrate the history of Wrightsville Beach. The museum’s collections contain items that best depict this history in terms of natural resources, exploration, settlement, trade, transportation, education, and cultural and social development.
The Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is a non-profit institution governed by a board of Directors. Their purpose is to promote and advance the understanding and enjoyment of the history of Wrightsville Beach, helping the museum to educate and serve the community through exhibition and interpretation. The museum relies on memberships, donations, and fundraisers to fund its exhibits and programs. Museum volunteers perform valuable service and are essential to the life of the museum. We do not receive public funding. Annual public fundraisers include an Oyster Roast, Lumina Daze, Shrimperoo, and Jingle Bell 5K Run.
