The Ocracoke Preservation Society (OPS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Ocracoke Island's rich historical and cultural heritage. 

Our museum houses a collection of Ocracoke historical items, a research library, special exhibits that change each year, and a gift shop. The museum is open from Easter through Thanksgiving. 

OPS organizes events throughout the year, including summer porch talks, art openings, events for members only, a Wassail party, and new this year, a winter historical house tour.
