I was pleasantly surprised when we visited this museum. I've driven by it many times but had never gone in. For a small donation (just $2) you can spend some time here looking at various maritime artifacts including Coast Guard artifacts. There is a very nice video of John Smith's discovery and exploration of the Chesapeake Bay in the 1600s.... More

I enjoyed looking at the different items in the museum. I found the information on John Smith interesting and also liked looking at different items related to boats and ships

The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum is adjacent to the Concord Point Lighthouse, Havre de Grace Promenade, and Tydings Park. The Havre de Grace Decoy Museum is also nearby. One can take in all these attractions from one parking space. No need to drive from place to place! There is plenty of free parking along Concord Street and Lafayette Street.... More

The Maritime Museum features insights into the rich history of Havre de Grave as well as the exploration and settlement of the upper Chesapeake Bay. One room is dedicated to the evolution of the settlement of this area as the English began to move north from Virginia. The importance of the Bay for fishing and hunting becomes much clearer in...

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.

The building is very nice on the inside and you can see the water. It would have been nice to have our questions answered by the woman at the front desk but... More
