Mission Statement

The North Carolina Maritime Museum documents, collects, preserves, and researches the maritime history - and its corollary natural history - of coastal North Carolina for the purpose of interpreting this history through educational services and exhibits for our contemporary society, and passing intact its material culture to future generations.

Description

The Maritime Museum strives to reach a broad and diverse audience of families, children, the elderly, ethnic minorities, and the physically challenged. Visitation exceeds 240,000 annually with special events, educational programming and exhibitions. The museum and its facilities - especially its auditorium, library, and Watercraft Center - are made available to community, civic, and educational groups.

The Museum is open 360 days each year from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm weekdays, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm Saturdays, and 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Sudays, closing only for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. The regular museum schedule does not begin to cover the extracurricular evening and weekend programs offered. The museum is open numerous evenings for special lectures, concerts, and community functions. The Watercraft Center offers evening and weekend classes in boatbuilding, model building, and half-model construction.

NCMM strives to make its facilities available to the greatest number of people at all times. Its programs solicit nearby Elderhostel groups and late fall vacationers; its Summer Science School and Junior Sailing Program are aimed at young students on vacation.
