There are many advantages to becoming a business member of the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort.
The reason the museum can provide a large variety of programs and exhibits for the community is largely due to member support. State funding makes the museum possible. Membership support enhances community outreach and the quality of exhibits and programs.
With membership support, we have helped the Museum provide a high level of visitor service, education, and excitement for museum guests. You can be part of an exciting partnership to support the museum. You can join because you want to be part of preserving North Carolina’s rich maritime heritage and history. You can help support our efforts to foster curiosity and wonder at what we can learn from artifacts and interpretations from as long ago as three hundred years.
Be a part of the larger view of life through the ages on the North Carolina coast.
