Description

from North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum
North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum promotes a strong sense of community pride and fosters an appreciation for our place in the region's rich history.

After eight years of planning, North Myrtle Beach Historical Museum opened on April 7, 2013. The Museum's mission is to foster a deeper appreciation for culture, history, and science of the North Myrtle Beach area. Exhibits and programs focus on stories from the region's first inhabitants to the development of today's tourism industry.

NMB Museum has brought HOPE to the Grand Strand. Visit the Museum before September 18 to see the blockbuster exhibit Bob Hope: An American Treasure. Witness the early days of his career until his last performances. Laugh at his jokes. Remember how the Guinness Book's most "honored" man brought comedy to America and to the world.

Although Bob Hope: An American Treasure has been exhibited in Denver, CO, New Orleans, LA, Green Bay, WI, and Greenwich, England, the exhibit has never been seen on the east coast. North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum is honored to host the exhibit in South Carolina.

The Bob Hope: An American Treasure exhibit is presented by the World Golf Hall of Fame. The exhibit chronicles Bob Hope's story through first-person comedy, combining anecdotes, quotes, jokes and stories from all aspects of his life. The exhibit includes more than 170 artifacts, 200 vintage photos, and seven video displays that examine Hope's early years as part of an immigrant family; his rise as a star of stage, screen and radio; the relationships he had with U.S. presidents; his devotion to the U.S. military; and his love of golf.

Bob Hope: An American Treasure is presented in North Myrtle Beach through the generosity of the Bob and Delores Hope Foundation. Local sponsors are the City of North Myrtle Beach, Alligator Adventure, Elliott Realty, Grand Strand Dining Group, and the North Myrtle Beach Times.

Members and Children under 5 are Free.
