The Missiles and More Museum came to life when a group of citizens were concerned for the future of the historical Assembly Building. The building, constructed 1946, was used by the government to assemble missiles for a secret missile operation being conducted on Topsail Island. These citizens began to pursue their goal to preserve the building and After several years of research, feasibility studies and meeting with state and local representatives the building was purchased. Thus the Assembly Building became the perfect place to house the Missiles and More Museum. The late Betty Polzer’s dream was to promote the history of Topsail Island And through her persistence, her dream was finally realized and the Missiles and More Museum opened its door in 1995.
The Museum welcomes special arrangements for schools, church groups and organizations to tour the Museum. For information and appointments please contact the Museum Director at 910-328-2488.
