It's definately worth the stop -- lots of interesting items. Be sure to see the video -- it was on the other side of the building from the exhibit.

There’s a reason for all the lighthouses on the Outer Banks… These waters were and still are some tricky business for mariners. Today, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum tells the maritime history and the more adventurous can free-dive the coast for shipwrecks like the Pocahontas Shipwreck.
