As a result, we need you to become a Friend. Join the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum. We ask you to join, renew, volunteer or donate.
Because we are a member supported organization, membership dollars are the foundation of our budget. Revenues from our membership program are instrumental in allowing the Friends to help the museum with support for the educational programming, special events, and public awareness programs.
