CBMM’s Special Exhibitions are displayed in the Steamboat Building galleries and the Van Lennep Auditorium, with larger exhibitions rotating regularly. These exhibitions feature CBMM’s unique collections, maritime art, world-class photography and documentary images—as well as loans from museums and private collectors–and showcase historical and contemporary community and individual perspectives on the Chesapeake Bay’s maritime culture.
