Took a 3 hour trip to get to St. Michaels for a birthday adventure. The weather was beautiful. The museum was not crowded. Parking at one of the municipal parking lots. Hands on exploration was great for all ages. BRING YOUR CAMERA great views of the water! We had our young daughter and two older young adults. We loved exploring the lighthouse. Staff was fabulous very friendly! Thank you for your support of the armed forces!! The museum was close enough to other points of interest on St. Michael's that you could reach by walking. Gift shop had bottled drinks for purchase and great little gifts.
