Try traditional woodworking, play Elizabethan games, and watch the blacksmith at the Settlement Site. Discover 400 years of Outer Banks history in the interactive Roanoke Adventure Museum. See The Legend of Two-Path, a mini-movie about Native Americans. Experience the new American Indian Town exhibit that includes a wide variety of true-to-scale structures, role-play environments, and places to explore, plant, dance, build, and play. The gift store offers historically themed gift merchandise and much more. Enjoy the onsite Art Gallery, the Fossil Pit full of treasures, and the marsh-side Boardwalks that surround the site.
