A nationally recognized institution dedicated to preserving the heritage of the Chesapeake, the Museum offers spectacular sunset views of the Miles River, unique venues, and first-class event coordination to complement every occasion. With stunning backdrops for wedding portraits, the Museum provides an exquisite array of Chesapeake scenery and textures, ranging from the rustic Small Boat Shed, to panoramic views of the water on Navy Point, from the very top of the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse to the authentic Waterman’s Wharf on Fogg’s Landing.

Give your guests a true Chesapeake experience with a one-of-a-kind event, in which they not only celebrate your special day, but take away a piece of history. From a large, tented affair for 350 people, to small intimate gatherings, the Museum is an ideal spot to create memories for a lifetime. All couples are welcome at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
