New Director

2009 brought a new director, Madeline Flagler, to the Museum.  Flagler sees the Museum as a porthole for tourists visiting Wrightsville Beach.  Flagler said, “Being a museum is very rewarding, it’s educational, it’s something the whole family can do and you can plan your programming around that – reaching different people of different ages.”
