The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum Is Decking Its Halls for a Holiday at the Museum

The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum is inviting everyone to a free Open House Saturday, December 10th from noon to 4pm. They have been busy decorating and are anxiously waiting to show off their festive spirit!

If you bring a donation for the food bank, you will receive a 5% discount in the Meekins Chandlery Gift Shop and each shopper will be given a special holiday bag.

When you stroll through the holiday village, you will be delighted by the vintage Santa Claus displays, and your eyes will sparkle at the sight of twinkling lights and ornamented trees. The animatronic dog and bear is sure to cause laughter to erupt from young and old!

Caroling and children’s activities will be held in the education wing. Open the doors to the Burrus Couch Midgett Gallery and learn Hatteras Island history by viewing: the “Flags Over Hatteras” Civil War exhibit with pieces assembled from collections around the nation; the “Pirates, Scalawags, and Brigands” display with actual artifacts from Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge shipwreck; recognize some familiar names and faces and learn about the cultural implications of shipwrecks in “Ship Ashore” ; and even view actual pieces from the dining room table of the U.S.S. Monitor.

Enjoy a variety of hot soups and holiday cookies for free! All events and exhibits are free and are appropriate for all ages.
