“Great place to visit!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This museum is very special! It has a short movie explaining about the Pamilico River and what a brackish environment is. They also have a "hands-on" area for children! It is located right on the river with access to a boarwalk! Lovely venue!!

Such a wonderful place to visit. I've been there several times with school groups and the kids always love it. Also, has a great gift shop that everyone needs to visit.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Fun place to visit. Excellent information about rivers, estuaries and climate change. Be sure to view the large sculpture in the lobby and to hear the story.

Good day trip for the kids! Highly educational and lots to look at. They have a great park across the street for lunch on a nice day.

“Wonderful for everyone”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

Whether you are an adult or a child, or a childlike adult, the Estuarium offers something for everyone. In addition to the displays, there is a gift shop. River Rover tours, let by an experienced guide, take folks out on the Pamlico to see a variety of nature. Some are specific, such as the mistletoe one. There is a modest fee and you do need a reservation. It is a pontoon boat, so seating is limited. At the center, you can sign up for a variety of classes, including watercolor. Get on their list so you can keep abreast of what is being offered. They have a wonderful deck on the front of the building, and you can take a walk along the boardwalk. No, there is no ferris wheel, but you just might spot an otter!
