The Roanoke Island Festival Park has two very special venues of North Carolina heritage -- the Adventure Museum and the Outer Banks History Center. The Adventure Museum is a facility designed to provide a hands-on experience for visitors and is set up in chronological order so people can explore the 400 years of Outer Banks history. The museum targets school children in fourth and eighth grade history classes. Students can meet a pirate, dress up in Elizabethan clothing, and learn navigation with 16th-century tools. The North Carolina State Archives administers the Outer Banks History Center that collects and preserves the history and culture of the North Carolina coast. Among the holdings are historian David Stick's extensive collection of Outer Banks' materials, maps, and oral histories.
