The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) was a wonderful place to spend time in St. Michaels. We bought a ticket and took advantage of the free second day entry to split our visit over two separate mornings. They have fantastic exhibits on the history of the Chesapeake bay including the work and traditions of the Bay watermen and pleasure boating and sailing on the bay. We really enjoyed our cruise out on the river on the WINNIE ESTELLE - we had a wonderful guide who was knowledgeable about both the history and folklore of the river and area, and it was a great way to get out on the water and see more of the beautiful area. The working shipyard was great, and it was great to be able to see and talk to the working shipwrights and to see the recently restored skipjack ROSIE PARKS. The campus is beautiful (and pet friendly) and there are great activities for kids as well. Its a must-see in St. Michaels!
