North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort

Blackbeard and more! Visit the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort for a taste of coastal cultures and maritime history.  Exhibits feature the state’s rich seafood industry, life-saving stations and lighthouses, and sailboats and motorboats. The Museum is the official repository for artifacts from Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge, which ran aground near Beaufort in 1718.

While you're here, ask a volunteer to take you up the spiral staircase for the best view in Beaufort!
