The museum is very small, but free. I was very disappointed with the gift shop. Can only park about 3 cars

The exhibits here explain the history and ecology of the Chesapeake Bay in a small setting. They also have a winter lecture series on relevant topics that is well worth attending. In warmer weather there are local-group concerts on the grounds.

This small, free museum showcases the history of the oyster industry in the Chesapeake. The staff are very knowledgeable and did a great job of engaging my kids. Worth a visit.

Well worth a visit. We will return in the summer months to enjoy all of the displays. We were most impressed by the displays and the recent history. WOW!

This museum does show some history but its a very small one room museum. Located a few miles from the busy area of Annapolis

This is a hidden GEM worth going to. You can spend about 1-2 hours here learning the ins and outs of the oyster industry and its impact on Crabtown by the Bay. Its really neat. I think it costs a few bucks for the tour,...More

We attended the wedding of 2 Navel Academy grads. Dinner was great. The venue was perfect. Not to formal and not too casual.
