Monthly Programs Still on Hold

Since Governor Cooper has allowed museums in the state to open, we have decided to re-open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. For the time being we will not be opening on Tuesdays.

We are currently looking at a significant budget shortfall this coming year, due to being closed for six months, which cost us a good deal in donations and gift shop sales. We also did not receive as much from the Town of Carolina Beach as we have in the past, which affected our staffing budget. The Board will be looking at ways to make up the shortfall, including possible fund raisers and we hope to restore our staffing level at some point in the future.

Unfortunately, monthly programs are still on hold. The space is just too small for gatherings of the kind we have had in the past.

We are looking into using Zoom at some point. If there is anyone with experience in producing video programs, and making them available on Zoom or YouTube, please let us know!
