Missiles and More Museum, Topsail Island – North Carolina Thursdays October 17, 2019

This one almost fell in my lap. I was looking at Burgaw, North Carolina since I was at the top of North Carolina for last week’s North Carolina Thursdays post. The town name Burgaw stuck in my mind as unusual. I decided to look on Wikipedia for museums in Pender County and came across Missiles and More Museum, Topsail Island. It is mentioned https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_museums_in_North_Carolina, but no article on the museum. There is a link to the museum website. The address is also the home of Historical Society of Topsail Island.

As I studied abandoned missile silos scattered around the country a few years ago, I became more interested in researching things missile related. The museum opened in 1995.
