Our Mission

Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport help fund its new exhibits, summer camps, special events and daily operation.


Volunteers are a vital part of the Southport Maritime Museum.  They are the first point of contact for our visitors and help them set the tone for an educational, thought-provoking and enjoyable experience.


Your donation help funds development of new programs and exhibits, repairs and maintenance of the building and grounds, and so much more.

How do You Move a Two Ton Cannon? 

Very Carefully

Museum Director John Moseley and Board member Jack Collins recently removed our prized La Rosa cannon from its base in preparation for a move to its new permanent location in the museum lobby.  The base will be refurbished and the new display will greet our guests.
