On Tuesday, July 20, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore opened the Ocracoke Island Discovery Center, a facility that offers trip planning information and a variety of educational exhibits.

The Ocracoke Island Discovery Center is the new name for the renovated building formerly known as the Ocracoke Island Visitor Center, located at the south end of the village of Ocracoke.

This summer, the Ocracoke Island Discovery Center will be open from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m., seven days a week.

Inside the building, visitors can experience exhibits that include a slideshow of historic photographs, a children’s activity corner, touch-and-feel table and information desk.  Some of the exhibits in the Ocracoke Island Discovery Center are temporary while permanent, more interactive exhibits are designed and installed over the following year.

Seven temporary exhibit panels are inside the Ocracoke Island Discovery Center. Permanent exhibits are expected to be installed next year. NPS photo.
After completing an activity at the activity corner, visitors can display their finished work inside the Discovery Center. NPS photo.
