Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum
More than 2,000 shipwrecks lie off North Carolina's Outer Banks. The dangerous mix of severe weather, shallow waters, and strong currents earn the area the nickname "Graveyard of the Atlantic."
Exhibits tell the stories of the USS Monitor, the Civil War, pirates, the U-85, lighthouses and the U.S. Life Saving Service, shipwrecks, heroic rescues, and mysteries of the deep.
The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum offers a full range of programs and events throughout the year.
