Perhaps the highlight of our Eastern Shore trip. The museum is spread over several buildings that focus on wooden boat building methods, lighthouse life, oyster industry, pleasure boating history, eco system and more. Left smarter than I arrived, and had fun too.
I've lived in Maryland for decades and never knew that this museum was here. I thought it was really great; interesting for adults and fun for kids. It reminded me of Willliamsburg, but a little smaller and based on the town's relationship to the water.
We thought we'd spend a little bit of time at the museum before boarding the Patriot Cruise. We ended up loving it so much, we came back after the cruise so we could be sure to see all the exhibits. Our kids absolutely loved it!...More

There is a wonderful museum store for fabulous gifts.
