About the Museum:

The Museum’s interpretive exhibitions and public programs highlight Chesapeake Bay maritime history and culture. Learn about Native American life, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century trans-Atlantic trade, naval history, the Bay’s unique watercraft and boat building traditions, navigation, waterfowling, boating, seafood harvesting, and recreation.

The Hooper Strait Lighthouse offers hands-on exhibit where visitors can climb the sea hatch, tend the huge lens, or stand watch on the lookout for ships or fog, experiencing firsthand the solitary, often heroic lives of Hooper Strait lighthouse keepers.

In addition to the land-based exhibits, visitors can also explore six boats in the museum’s floating fleet.
