Situated on 18 waterfront acres in the historic town of St. Michaels, Maryland, the Museum offers exhibits, demonstrations, boat rides on the Miles River, and annual festivals that celebrate Chesapeake Bay culture, boats, seafood, and history.
"One of the best maritime museums anywhere. After 40 plus years the CBMM has matured, with a wide range of exhibits and programs of interest to adults and children alike. Whether one's interests focus on boats, watermen, oysters and crabs or simply regional history there is much to enjoy." - DAGTuscon, Tuscon, AZ
"Excellent overview of the Bay experience. The indoor-outdoor museum tries, successfully, to give an idea of all the Bay's history and what if offers today. It has exhibits on oystering and crabbing, working and pleasure boats, the delicate environment of this beautiful place, a lighthouse, and more. It's definitely worth spending a couple of hours here." - CBW47, Yorktown, VA
"Surprisingly thorough throughout the entire campus. We learned so much about the Chesapeake, its watermen and women workers in the seafood industry. - Germany1966_12, Clarksville, MD
"Fun way to spend the afternoon. I took my three children to the Chesapeake Bay maritime museum over Memorial Day weekend and they absolutely loved it. Our favorite part of the museum was exploring the lighthouse and our boat ride (Mister Jim). I highly recommend visiting this museum if you are looking for a fun and relaxing way to spend your afternoon in Saint Michaels. - JR, MD
