Greetings from Ocracoke Island and OPS


Due to the financial impact of Covid-19, hurricane repair, along with the safety concern of our patrons, volunteers and staff, the OPS board has decided to remain closed through the end of the year, with plans to reopen in the spring of 2021.

Thank you for understanding and for your generous support through these uncertain times. We look forward to welcoming you back in the Spring.
Though the museum will be closed we will still be going forward with our annual events (virtually), such as the Quilt Raffle drawing on Dec. 8th, 2020 and the Art Auction on January 23rd, 2021.

Meanwhile, take an opportunity to see what is new in the OPS Gift Shop this season and revisit our merchandise we feature each year. You can make your purchases online and we will ship them out to you!  It is easy to keep supporting OPS with your purchases and donations. This will ensure that we are here and ready for your return!

We can’t begin to express our appreciation at this difficult time for all of us!


The new quilt of our annual raffle is complete and it is beautiful! Thank you to the Ocracoke Needle and Thread Club for again making an heirloom quality traditional quilt for OPS.
