The Wrightsville Beach Museum is housed in the circa 1909 Myers cottage, one of the oldest cottages on the beach. Opened in May 1995, the museum presents beach history and lifestyles.

Walk though the Myers Cottage and feel what it was like to be at the beach in 1930. There is a bedroom with period furnishings, a bathroom with 1920s bathing suits hanging out to dry, and kitchen with items typical of a kitchen of the 1920s-40s. The museum has a scale model of the beach and its buildings circa 1910, a donated shell collection, a trolley car accessible by the porch, and a fish pond from the front door.

The museum hosts an annual fund-raiser called Lumina Daze in August as well as a full schedule of programs throughout the year. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday 10 AM to 4 PM, Saturday noon to 5 PM and Sunday 1 to 5 PM. Entrance to the museum and parking are both free. The museum is wheelchair accessible. Upon crossing the drawbridge, bear left at the Wrightsville Beach sign; the museum is the second right.
