Fun museum trip!
Ever fed a live horseshoe crab? Know how a sea star eats?
At the Museum of Coastal Carolina at Ocean Isle Beach, you can walk through the largest dry aquarium in the Southeast, see a video of sea turtles nesting, enjoy wildlife dioramas and feel sea urchins in the Touch Tank. The museum's new fossil exhibit features Herman the Sperm Whale, and its new art gallery opens Thursday, June 13. Summer programs (all Tuesdays) include Carolina Pirates (June 4), Dolphins of NC (June 18), A Titanic Survivor Tells Her Story (July 23), Raptors (July 30), and Sharks! (Aug. 13).
