Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland, is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving more than 75,000 guests each year, CBMM’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats, 12 exhibition buildings, and changing special exhibitions, all set in a park-like waterfront setting along the Miles River and St. Michaels’ harbor.

CBMM is a fully accredited member of the American Association for Museums, offering interactive exhibitions, tours and scenic boat rides, demonstrations, boat rides on the Miles River, hands-on education programs for children and adults, and annual festivals that celebrate the Chesapeake Bay culture, boats, seafood, history, and people.

CBMM’s collection of historic Chesapeake Bay watercraft–maintained by shipwrights and their apprentices in our Working Boatyard–is the largest in existence. The small boat collection includes crabbing skiffs, workboats, and log canoes.
