Interesting history.

If interested in history this is the spot for you. Free entry. Not very big. It would not take long to go through unless you stay to watch the film.

A friend and I drove up to Corolla to see the Currituck Lighthouse. While in the area we went into the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education on a whim. Boy, were we surprised! Large exhibit area telling the history of fishing and hunting in the northern part of the Outer Banks. Extensive decoys with interesting descriptions of their carvers.... More

Was next door at the lighthouse and walked over on a whim. Great little find. Very educational. Nice facilities. Got to watch a film and walk through a small museum.

We randomly stopped at this place and saw the history of the area. Was a great lil museum and got to watch a video history. Very informative, free admission, and right next door to a beautiful lighthouse. Definitely a good family stop.

We stopped by here on our way back from a wild horse tour. My daughter (13) was not as interested as we were, but really enjoyed it. If you are a duck hunter or just interested in the history of the area, you will find this place very interesting. No cost.

Now that you have enjoyed the nice sandy beaches of the outer banks, it is time to spend an extra hour or so to learn about the history and ecology of the outer banks. The outer Banks have a very rich and amazing history, and the ecology and geology is even more amazing. This centre lets you learn about all... More

Came here with my wife and 4 boys on a rainy day. The entire place was basically pictures and taxidermied native species. My 4 year old was even bored here...

The video is a must to get the natural history of the area. And the price is right: FREE! Interesting exhibits to be enjoyed by any age. You even get a little education on the back of the bathroom stalls.

Lots of great information and dispalys about the surrounding area's wildlife. Can easily be toured in a couple of hours. We visted in the off season, so a few of the exhibits were not open.
