Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

About the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to telling the stories of the Chesapeake Bay and the people who have shaped their lives around it.

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.

The Museum’s floating fleet of historic Chesapeake Bay watercraft is the largest in existence and its small boat collection includes crabbing skiffs, workboats, and log canoes. The Museum’s working boatyard highlights restoration of the Bay’s traditional vessels. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a fully accredited member of the American Association of Museums.
