Hands-on fun at CBMM’s Family Day this fall

(ST MICHAELS, MD – August 8, 2017) On Saturday, September 23, the public is invited to Family Day at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., guests can follow a special Quest Card to explore family-friendly exhibits and enjoy hands-on activities along CBMM’s 18-acre campus.

Families can examine the critters living on an oyster reef, learn to take photos like Robert de Gast, and help construct a dugout canoe. Guests can dress as a lighthouse keeper and explore what life was like for those who worked in the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, before climbing to the top for a bird’s-eye view.

All of the day’s activities are free for CBMM members and are included with regular admission for museum guests, with no advanced registration needed. Educators can receive free family admission for the day by registering at bit.ly/CBMMFamilyDay. All pre-registered educators must provide credentials at check-in, such as certification or school/employer ID, to receive complimentary family admission.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving more than 70,000 guests each year, the museum’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats and 12 exhibition buildings, situated in a park-like, waterfront setting along the Miles River and St Michaels harbor. Charitable gifts to the museum’s Annual Fund enable CBMM to educate and inspire the next generation of Chesapeake Bay stewards, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.

From now through 2018, museum guests can see the log-hull restoration of the 1889 bugeye, Edna E. Lockwood, with more information at ednalockwood.org. For more information about CBMM, visit cbmm.org.
