This is a wonderful replica of the first Screwpile Roanoke River lighthouse. The maritime museum adds an interesting dimension and the staff are friendly and very helpful. There is so much history in Plymouth. The waterfront location is beautiful. I’m glad we visited!

Enjoyed climbing the lighthouse to the top most, the interior was nice, but few displays/exhibits. Note: their appeared to be mold in the second level. The top level with the light has a very small hatch access outside, difficult for most adults to climb through....More

We came to here to find a geocache. This was our first visit to Plymouth and we certainly learned a lot about its history-especially during the Civil War. Great area to spend some time along the water.

This is part of the Mariner's museum. It was interesting to learn the history of the area and the lighthouse. There is also a rail trail which is a great walk around the old rail line and through the town.
