Although the Museum facility was renovated prior to opening, limited funding reduced the project to the bare essentials–painting, floor coverings, and minimal furnishings. Donations are sought for exhibit development, engaging programs, landscaping, kitchen and restroom renovations, and site improvements.
Naming opportunities are available for corporate recognition and family memorials. If you want to help take our community’s Museum to a higher level, contact us at 843.427.7668 or History@nmbmuseum.com
The Museum is seeking items which represent year-round and seasonal activities in the North Myrtle Beach area. Artifacts will be used to tell the stories of families and fishing, churches and children, sports and schools, doctors and dancing, birthdays and burials–everyday events that capture the breadth of activities in the North Myrtle Beach area.

Bricks at the Beach Fundraising Campaign
With Bricks @ the Beach, you can celebrate a birthday, holiday, graduation, or other milestone; honor a family member or an influential person in your life; or create a meaningful reminder of your dedication to the community’s history. The personalized pavers will be installed at the front of the Museum and will leave a lasting memory in North Myrtle Beach. Funds raised from the bricks will be used for interpretive signage and interactive exhibits.
Two sizes are available. The 8″ x 4″ brick is $100; 8″ x 8″ brick is $225. Each brick will be sandblasted and painted to preserve the inscription. The small brick can accommodate three lines of type, each 18 spaces long. The large brick can accommodate six lines of text, each 18 spaces long.
Bricks @ the Beach is an ongoing campaign. When the Museum receives a minimum of 10 orders, Bricks R Us will prepare the commemorative bricks.
Order bricks at the Museum or online at BricksRus.
