A great fun place that you can spend hours at.Learn about crabbing and oystering plus see amazing restored boats from years past.The Rosie Parks is awesome but they have many other bay boats.I loved the rich history and the light house was my favorite.Lots of fun events all year long.A must see while in St. Michaels
Great museum detailing Bay life and history

We liked that we could enjoy the place at our own pace rather than being stuck with a docent. The lighthouse exhibit is great, and so is the building devoted to pleasure boating. Overall, a fun way to learn about the Chesapeake Bay.
Kept us busy for hours

Fun place to visit. Nice displays of all aspects of boats, scrapping and oysters. We even took a boat ride on the Miles River. The staff at the admissions was really friendly and gave us good suggestions. Boats, jellyfish and a snake! Loved how well everything was labeled. Great hands on stuff for the "kids" too! I was tired by the end! Nice garden displays and Fredrick Douglass' sister's how was a terrific history lesson. Go early.
Really well put together

Very beautiful and informative museum. The lighthouse is especially stunning easily worth the price of admission and spending half a day seeing the various history of the Chesapeake bay.
Beautiful venue for the wedding

This was a beautiful venue for a late afternoon wedding ceremony. While it was a bit warm during the outdoor ceremony, as the sunset and the temperature dropped, it turned out to be very scenic. The facility and catering staff provided very good service and the dinner and appetizers were very enjoyable. Overall a really nice experience capped off by a gorgeous site.
