Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum
Located in a restored 1900s-era house, the Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum is a non-profit organization that works to preserve the island’s unique history and rich culture. Here, you can find permanent and rotating, indoor and outdoor exhibitions depicting life in earlier times on the island. The museum is also home to a research library that houses a vast book and photo collection as well as a gift shop.
In the summer, the museum staff offers talks on the back porch about the local culture, traditions, and history of the island. During the winter months when the museum is closed, the staff continues their work of digitally archiving texts, images, and other artifacts.
Visitors are welcome Monday through Saturday, Easter through Thanksgiving, and admission is free.
