The 5th Annual Ocracoke Fig Festival was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came and supported it.

Make plans to be here for next year!

You can find a list of winners with photos here. Please visit our facebook page for more photos and information!

Construction and renovations have begun on the old Island Inn. This structure is very historically significant to Ocracoke. You can find more information here and on our facebook page. This is a huge undertaking and we need your help! In the upcoming months and years, we will be having various fundraisers to benefit this project and the general museum operations. Be sure to come visit us at the museum on your next trip to the island!
You can also shop for items from our gift shop here on our website. These proceeds are what support the museum and our special projects.
