The Aurora Fossil Museum, founded in 1976, is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit museum and educational resource center. Our mission is to educate the public in an enjoyable manner while emphasizing the natural and cultural history of Eastern North Carolina.
The Aurora Fossil Museum strives to continue carrying out our mission through providing an admission-free museum and inquiry-based STEM learning in an engaging and enjoyable atmosphere. To continue offering admission-free access, we rely on revenue generated through our gift shop and generous donations from individuals and corporations like you.
Please consider making a donation to the Aurora Fossil Museum to help support our cause. Any size donation is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use for not only improving, developing, and expanding science education for museum visitors, but your support also assists us with our continued outreach efforts!
Help us educate the future about the past!
