This facility offers a great deal of information to the visitor as related to NC wildlife, waterfowl, history of the Currituck area, etc. Very enjoyable, and well worth the time to see.

This is a good place to walk around for wildlife viewing. There are great views of the water. There is good fishing and crab fishing. The buildings are interesting also. It's next to the Currituck lighthouse.

We stumble din here while searching for a restroom. What a lucky find! I was impressed with the exhibits regarding local history and wildlife. Great fun for myself and my 7 year old daughter.

We stopped in after climbing the lighthouse and my children were thrilled with the animal exhibits. It's not a huge place but it's well kept up. Informative about the local area wildlife. There is a movie that plays and a room to wander through with...More

We do this every year! I really enjoy it! But so sad they took the water exhibit out! But kids will enjoy seeing the animals!
