''Most of the museum is still apparently under construction. The main attraction here is the full Fresnel lens on display. Since only a portion of the museum is open, it takes about 30 minutes to go through it. The admission is free....''
''The best breakfast and the nicest people on the beach. We visit every year and will be back next year. In fact, we usually rent our house each year based on the location of it to the pier. Looking forward to next year....''
''A small museum, run by locals that love the island and want you to love it too. Ocracoke is a quaint place to visit but it surpassed being just a beach trip when I learned about the people and events that made Ocracoke what it is today. Museum offered ''Back Porch'' talks that were sometimes informational and often fun. The week we were there they offered storytelling two days with storytellers attending Donald Davis' National Storytelling Workshop....''
''This was one of the places that was on my ''Must See'' list. It did not disappoint. The stories of the rescues were very interesting and seeing the house and the kitchen building like it would have been back then was a lot of fun. We did not get to tour the original 1874 station because it was damaged from a lightning strike. I definitely recommend visiting if you're going to the Outer Banks....''
''Along with the informative film presentation and displays depicting the story of the famed ''Lost Colony of Roanoke Island,'' my family and I were intrigued as we discovered the story of the other ''lost'' colony. In 1862, escaped enslaved Africans sought the recently liberated from the Confederacy island as a refuge of freedom. They established their own colony that was to be a model used throughout the South of how former Black slaves were to transition in to a viable and self-sufficient peo...''
''I love this pier. It's a great place for families to come and have a good time. You wouldn't think that you could do a lot on a pier besides fishing, but here you can play pool and have your kids play in the arcade while the adults walk the pier. It's great!...''
''Coming from a family who loves the water we had a wonderfull time fishing. The captian was kind and the crew just as nice. I would love to do this again the next time I am in town with the kids....''
''This house reminded me alot of the Biltmore House in Asheville. Not in size but in the grandeur of the house itself, how modern it was for it's time. It had an elevator, a refrigerator in the kitchen and central heat throughout most of the house. During the audio tour, you get to see many rooms in the house including the bedrooms of Mr and Mrs Knight. The bathrooms were plumbed for fresh and saltwater and Mrs Knight's bathroom had a bidet. This is one of the few homes on the Outer Banks that has...''
''The hotel was very clean, staff was nice and hospitable but the room was small and very common. The bar with live outdoor entertainment across the street was not an appropritate scene for my 12 year old. People were loud and drunk and started fighting when we arrived. The police were called as the fight spilled into the downstairs hotel rooms. The next night there was no fighting but still very loud music very late and drunks. Also the ''continental'' breakfast was a let-down. Packaged muffins,...''
