From the introduction of the unique sculpture in the lobby which represents North Carolina and a drop of water in its trip through a full cycle from sea to cloud to raindrop. A very good short film entertains and educates about the estuary area. The rest of spaces highlight the wildlife and history of the area. The best part of a visit in the summer is taking the pontoon boat ride up the river. The hour and a half ride was both fun and educational. The guide is very good at explaining the building and operation of railroad bridges and buildings and history of the area. If you are fortunate enough to see an Osprey in its nest he will also tell you how they migrate to Cental America. Very enjoyable and educational. A nice gift shop finishes the visit.
