We celebrated my husbands 50th class reunion. The venue was just the right size and thanks to great weather for cocktails on the deck. The catering was very good. Not sure the name but did a good job.

This is a very small museum that was converted from an old oyster processing house. Much of their displays are focused on oyster harvesting and production than anything else. There was some very nice artwork. Overall not much to see and I wouldn't classify it...More

The museum is very small, but free. I was very disappointed with the gift shop. Can only park about 3 cars

The exhibits here explain the history and ecology of the Chesapeake Bay in a small setting. They also have a winter lecture series on relevant topics that is well worth attending. In warmer weather there are local-group concerts on the grounds.

At the maritime museum there is a small amount of parking next to the building. But space is limited
