“Excellent view of life on an 18th cent. lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

The best part of touring the Chesapeake Maritime Museum! Touring the 18th century Hooper Strait Lighthouse brought here to rest. You can walk through all rooms with artifacts from the days when the keepers lived there 5 miles out to see for months at a time and get to know their duties - and harsh life conditions.

“hands on lighthouse..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This lighthouse was great for kids because its hands on... turn a crank and make the lighthouse bell sound, and they encourage you to open all the drawers and doors in the lighthouse. Love that! They even have a lighthouse keeper picture on the wall that comes to life with a video... I love those surprises !

“Worth a trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

I have visited many lighthouses, but this will be one of the most memorable. It is unique and I love the way that encouraged folks to look at everything... and the bathroom sign... I will be chuckling about that for years to come! A must-see when you visit the CBMM in St. Michaels.

“Go back in time with the lighthouse keeper!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

It was a lot of fun to learn how a lighthouse keeper lived while tending to his work. The CBMM did an amazing job of outfitting the building with everything a lighthouse keeper would use. It's also really nice to have the ability to climb the tower to the top, feel the breeze and take in the beautiful view.

“GO!”

What an interesting experience! I have never been in a lighthouse, and relished the idea of going into this one. What a treat!
