Trip Advisor Excellent museum
Aug 28, 2014 by: liveoak33 from Beaufort, SC
We really enjoyed this museum. There is a good mix of inside and outside exhibits. We especially loved taking a boat ride on the old buyboat. The museum and all it has to offer is certainly worth the price of admission.

Beautiful exhibits and the Lighthouse was very cool. Monday's is 1/2 price ($5) for a 45 minute right on the Winnie Estelle! It's great that the museum allows all-day access so you can come and go as you please!

Trip Advisor A sparkeling gem on the water.

A great fun place that you can spend hours at.Learn about crabbing and oystering plus see amazing restored boats from years past.The Rosie Parks is awesome but they have many other bay boats.I loved the rich history and the light house was my favorite.Lots of fun events all year long.A must see while in St. Michaels

Trip Advisor Great museum detailing Bay life and history

We liked that we could enjoy the place at our own pace rather than being stuck with a docent. The lighthouse exhibit is great, and so is the building devoted to pleasure boating. Overall, a fun way to learn about the Chesapeake Bay.

Fun place to visit. Nice displays of all aspects of boats, scrapping and oysters. We even took a boat ride on the Miles River. The staff at the admissions was really friendly and gave us good suggestions. Boats, jellyfish and a snake! Loved how well everything was labeled. Great hands on stuff for the "kids" too! I was tired by the end! Nice garden displays and Fredrick Douglass' sister's how was a terrific history lesson. Go early.
