Beachside to Boardwalk Family Fun in Carolina Beach
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, the last major Confederate victory of the Civil War. The vast collection of Civil War artifacts is one of the largest in the Carolinas, and behind the museum is a 63' replica of the CSS Albemarle, the most successful ironclad of the Civil War. Rotating exhibits shed light on a variety of local history topics - from fishing to farming to forestry.
On the last weekend in April, come enjoy the annual Battle of Plymouth Living History Weekend, soon to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Museum admission is $3 for adults; discounts for children apply. Field trips and bus groups welcomed with advance reservations.
