“hands on lighthouse..”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
