About Historic Frisco Native-American Museum

Located on Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Frisco Native American Museum and Natural History Center is a non-profit educational foundation created for the purpose of preserving Native American artifacts, art, and culture.

Housed in a building with a 100 years of history, the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center contains a nationally recognized collection of Native American artifacts, exhibits, and natural history displays.

Galleries filled with native art wind through the facility and include information on Native Americans across the United States as well as artifacts from the first inhabitants of Hatteras Island. Local finds include a dug-out canoe discovered on museum property as well as items recovered from the site of East Carolina University's archaeological dig at Buxton Village.

In addition to traditional exhibits and tours, the museum's activities also include Native American workshops, Scout badge work, school science projects, natural history programs, Native American studies, programs for the visually impaired, senior citizen seminars, and special events such as the Annual Inter-Tribal Powwow, a traditional, inter-tribal celebration with emphasis on the sharing of cultures and the opportunity to gather on ancestral grounds, and living history weekend with more than 40 learning activities for all ages.
