Aurora Fossil Museum Foundation, Inc

The Aurora Fossil Museum, founded in 1976, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) science education resource center. Our mission is to increase knowledge of the geology, paleontology, and prehistory of coastal North  Carolina in an engaging and enjoyable manner. We accomplish this mission through exhibits, interactive inquiry-based activities, outreach programs, events, field studies, and involvement in the annual Fossil Festival held on Memorial Day weekend.
