The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources set up the website. Queen Anne's Revenge to build on intense public interest in the finds. </li></ul><ul><li>All artifacts are housed at and can be visited at the North Carolina Maritime Museum, when not on tour </li></ul><ul><li>Currently visitation is not allowed to the wreck site, as a conservation measure.
