About Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center

The Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center provides a beautiful location for weddings, receptions, anniversaries, family gatherings, and other events throughout the year. This convenient setting with a charming, rustic atmosphere offers both inside and outside space with full kitchen facilities. The education hall area can seat up to 200 attendees for a formal dinner and up to 400 guests reception-style. The porches and oak-covered grounds are often used as well. Located next door to Cape Lookout National Seashore, the Museum is often the reception location for weddings held at the Lighthouse or Shell Point. CSWM&HC works with local schools, churches and non-profit organizations to host programs and events for the community.
