Outer Banks wildlife museum
The center, which opened in 2006, is an impressive and marvelous 22,000 square foot interpretive center for young and old alike to explore the history and vast diversity of North Carolina's wildlife. The center is located on the grounds of Currituck Heritage Park. One of the key displays is a massive living aquatic ephemera of fish, native to the region, housed in an 8,000 gallon aquarium where families can get up close and personal with a rich variety of finned swimmers. There is also a special decoy gallery with more than 250 unique antique waterfowl decoys and a life-size diorama of a duck blind in a salt marsh. Enjoy a 20 minute feature presentation, "Life by the Water’s Rhythms”. The documentary film explores the role of Currituck Sound in the natural and cultural history of the region. There is NO admission fee to enter the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. Donations are accepted.
