This is a must see in Saint Michael's. Very rich in history and right off the water. Great way to spend a day or half day in St Michael's. Staff was incredibly warm and knowledgeable

Plenty to see and do, but you'll be outside for part of your visit. Dress accordingly. Learn how the museum staff is restoring a bugeye oyster boat and how oystermen fought wars over territory.

Our visit to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum was a real trip into the past. Seeing and learning about the boat building, oyster and crab history as well as the people of the time was great fun...
