Onslow County Museum

Onslow County Museum

The Onslow County Museum actively pursues the acquisition of artifacts for the museum’s collection that are related to or relevant to the history of Onslow and the surrounding region. Once under the museum’s care, they are registered, researched, cataloged and stored according to standard museum practices employed by the Collections department. The scope of the approximately 6,000 object collection is diverse but at the same time specific, including these major categories: archival materials such as historic documents and books, agricultural tools, textiles, household items, and photographic images. Many of these artifacts are used in both permanent and temporary exhibits that reflect either the history of Onslow County or an aspect of history that is of interest to the general public.
