Guests to the Museum encounter Chesapeake Bay history first-hand through real people, real work, original artifacts, visual arts, and indigenous watercraft. There is something different every day – get your hands wet exploring a waterman’s shanty, talk with a shipwright or visiting captain about his vessel, or climb to the top of 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse for a view of the harbor.
