I got to sit in the pilot house and steer the boat. Nice boat ride on the bay. Beautiful houses and real osprey nesting.

Our visit here had things for all of our group: historic boats, watching boat building and repair, a lighthouse, history of the area, tugboats, crabs, oysters and waterfowl! We spent several hours enjoying and learning. We will recommend and return.

We became proud members of the museum after our first visit--great people, great displays, and beautiful location. They've created an incredible community. It's a must see in St. Michaels.

Very interesting and informative. This is a great place to bring kids to explore crabbing, finding oysters, learn about the Chesapeake Bay- and visit a Light House.

There was a lot of history provided going through the different areas. The old light house was very interesting.

I had ridden my bike from Easton and was just stopping. Boy, what a discovery! I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Maritime Museum. Not only the lighthouse, but also the ship building and learning about the famous skipjacks of the Chesapeake Bay. Wonderful experience. I would go again for sure.
