Some of the coolest things wash ashore on North Carolina beaches, including shells, sea beans and even some really strange stuff! We’ll have a variety of things we’ve found on the beach on display, including 101 North Carolina shells, fossils and the largest find in our collection – the skeleton of a 33.5-foot sperm whale that washed ashore at Cape Lookout in 2004. There will be crafts and make-and-take activities for children and lots of fun for all ages.
August 10, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Coinciding with the annual Beaufort Pirate Invasion, the Museum prepares for a scourge of scurvy dogs and the pirates that accompany them. Children can get their own pirate tattoos, hats and prizes with a number of pirate-themed games. Take part in a scavenger hunt to identify the rapscallions around town and collect your own booty as a reward. Bring your children to our annual luncheon where they can dine alongside pirates and hear a few sea stories of life on the high seas.
