Learn how 16th-century sea captains made the most of wind and water currents as they sailed to the New World. See the routes they took to Roanoke Island. Visit our touch screens and read theories of what happened to the 1587 Roanoke Island Colony...and tell us what you think happened! Revisit the legend of Blackbeard and dress up like a pirate. Live the life of a soldier in our Civil War exhibit and discover the Roanoke Island Freedmen’s Colony.
