This museum is truly a gem and never fails to amaze. The exhibits are so well done, the docents so knowledgeable, and the entire experience is worth the trip. W e really enjoyed seeing life develop along the banks of the river.

This is a good place to take children who are in pre school to third grade. The exhibits are mostly for this age group and some are interactive.

Worth checking out if you are Havre De Grace. A nice video of the area and the history of the area. If you are a boat or fish lover, the place for you!! Really enjoyed seeing old and new relics.

I was first invited here to bless the first floating of a boat building class's final projects. I have since had the chance to meet many of the administration, and their devotion to their work is admirable. It's not just a final resting place for vintage items, but a lively center for the continuation of an important culture.

We visited this museum as part of our book club discussion group. It is a wonderfully spacious museum with a number of changing exhibits. It has wonderful examples of maritime travelling from the history of European settlement of the Chesaoeake Bay.
