The center offers 5,000 square feet of displays and artifacts that interpret the rich natural and cultural history associated with northeastern North Carolina.
Exhibits include an 8,000-gallon aquarium stocked with native fish of Currituck Sound, a special decoy gallery with more than 250 antique waterfowl decoys, and a life-size diorama of a duck blind in a salt marsh.
A 20-minute feature presentation, "Life by Water's Rhythms," screens daily in the auditorium. The documentary explores the role of Currituck Sound in the natural and cultural history of the region.
A rare Risso’s dolphin skeleton is on display through June 2016 in the center lobby
