Nice exhibit of a skipjack boat
Apr 18, 2014 by: Alison H from Lancaster, Pennsylvania
A very small museum with friendly staff. The best thing for kids is a dissected skip jack that kids can crawl all over, "steer" and explore. But a visit won't take longer than an hour. The views are great, and you get a good sense of the different types of oyster boats.
A Nice Little Museum

Annapolis is all about its maritime history - water and boats; they are the core of early Annapolis. This is a nice, little museum to take a stroll through. It's housed in an old oyster facility from when oysters were BIG, BIG business and the numbers are oysters taken was astounding. It's not big so well worth an hour or two of your time.
Great education of the Bay

This converted oyster house maintains the tradition of the Annapolis waterfront. The museum has hands on exhibits that is great for kids and if in town on Thursday nights, the museum has presentations on maritime subjects for adults (drop ins welcome)
Nice local maritime museum

Eastport has changed from it's original working waterfront roots. This museum highlights what Eastport was like when oysters and watermen were thriving.
Love their oyster display

I found the Museum's oyster display incredibly informative. I could have stayed there for hours reading about this mighty bivalve, but sadly the group I was with didn't see the draw. Their huge aquarium is fascinating. I was disappointed that the store was closed (we were there in the afternoon) and a classroom full of fourth graders were allowed to run all over the place.
