This is the most awesome place to visit. Learn the history of the Chesapeake Bay and how the old timers derived a living from the natural resources offered by the Bay.
Impressive museum for civil war buffs.

A PLACE YOU SHOULD NOT MISS !
Jan 22, 2015 by: John C from West Chester, Pennsylvania, United States
This is a place to go with your entire family --offers a wealth of information on life and activities of the Watermen and their families . You can wander about the 18 acres of buildings and go into the lighthouse -see all sorts of boats in their fleet (an amazing collection of different types sea going vessels ) You did not have to grow up on the water or have boats (I did ) to completely enjoy yourself . A worthwhile trip (plan on spending most of your day taking in the exhibits of models -guns -fishing items -crabbing-clamming oystering-boat shops just to name a few --- one thing the grounds are spotless -good parking and you also have the town of ST MICHAEL'S which caters to all one's needs The staff are great people and they have a gift shop with all sorts of items . And of course The CMO (chief mousing officer ) EDNA the salty cat go and have fun you will enjoy your visit

This would be alot more fun in the Summer, but we did have a good time, and will be back in warmer weather.
Spend The Day Here!

I first became a member of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum back in the 1970s and joined again when I moved back to the Eastern Shore. It's so much a natural part of my life and activities that I often forget to recommend it to friends and acquaintences. So here's my recommendation: Even if you know NOTHING about the Chesapeake Bay and sailing or boating or oystering or crabbing - or even if you know EVERYTING about it - you MUST put a visit to this fabulous "living" museum on your itinerary - and you MUST spend the better part of a full day here. Most interesting and best run museum of its kind ANYWHERE!
