Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering an understanding of the culture and history of the Chesapeake Bay. Since its founding in 1965, the Museum has grown through the support of volunteers, staff, and members. It is dedicated to furthering an interest in, understanding of, and appreciation for the culture and maritime heritage of the Chesapeake Bay and its environs. The Museum strives to be a premier museum, excelling in communicating to the public the history and culture of one of America’s major maritime regions—the Chesapeake Bay. Through the Museum's Breene M. Kerr Center for Chesapeake Studies, scholars undertake original research and collect oral histories from individuals closely involved with the Bay's rich maritime heritage. The Center presents the perspectives of history, economics, folklore, archeology, and environmental studies to a broad and diverse regional audience. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is the only museum devoted to interpreting the entire maritime region of the Bay.
