Welcome to the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History

The mission of Wrightsville Beach Museum is to serve as a repository for Wrightsville Beach history. Sometimes this is with objects, sometimes it is through programs, but it is always in connecting with this unique community and its people.

The Wrightsville Beach Museum of History, housed in the turn of the century Myers Cottage, exists to preserve and to share the history of Wrightsville Beach.

Visitors to the cottage will find a scale model of Wrightsville Beach circa 1910, exhibits featuring the early days of the beach including Lumina Pavilion, our hurricane history and information about the interaction between the people and our natural environment which have shaped over a century of history at Wrightsville Beach.
