Featuring interactive exhibits, the Outer Banks Children at Play Museum opened this week at milepost 4.5 in Kitty Hawk.
Kids can learn about aviation, boating, fishing and measuring their catch of the day, lighthouses and life saving, exploring under the sea, shopping for groceries at the market and running a deli.
There are science tables, art tables, books and puzzles. Infants have a padded corner with toys and games for their little world.
