About the Museum:

At Historic St. Mary’s City , colorful costumed interpreters in recreated 17th-century settings tell the stories of Maryland’s first years, when St. Mary’s was the colony’s capital. Outdoor exhibits include the reconstructed State House of 1676, Smith’s Ordinary, and the Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation, a working colonial farm. At the Woodland Indian Hamlet, visitors discover how Maryland’s native population interacted with English colonists. Sailors’ stories of the tobacco trade and immigration resound across the deck of the Maryland Dove, a replica square-rigged ship. The Maryland Dove occassionally travels to other ports.

Hands-on activities are offered at most sites. Special events scheduled on weekends from March through December offer visitors unique opportunities to work alongside professional archaeologists, churn butter, watch a militia drill, or shoot a bow and arrow. Living history exhibits at Historic St. Mary’s City are open seasonally, from the middle of March through November.
