Housed in a 1920s train station, this museum interprets the history of Plymouth and Washington County. Permanent exhibits tell the tale of the Battle of Plymouth, one of only two Confederate victories in North Carolina of the Civil War. The vast collection of Civil War artifacts is one of the largest in the Carolinas. Rotating exhibits shed light on a variety of local history topics - from fishing to farming to forestry.

Moored behind the museum is a 3/8-scale, 63-foot replica of the CSS Albemarle, the most successful ironclad of the Civil War. Upon request for groups, the CSS Albemarle will cruise up the Roanoke, fire its guns and return to its mooring.

On the last weekend in April, come enjoy the annual Battle of Plymouth Living History Weekend, soon to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
