The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland brings an authentic Chesapeake experience to each guest through a series of historic structures and boats, a working boatyard, plus year-round exhibitions and programs, all along a beautiful waterfront setting that has its own rich, Chesapeake history. Your Museum experience includes the opportunity to enjoy our changing and permanent exhibitions and waterfront park-like campus, while meeting real Chesapeake people, attending an event or program, or being out on the water on one of our boats. All ages and interests enjoy a memorable experience celebrating and learning more about the Chesapeake Bay’s culture, boats, seafood, and history with us.
