CBMM offering 2 day admission program

| April 18, 2014 | 1 Comment

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) has announced its general admission has been extended to cover a two-day visit to the museum’s waterfront campus and exhibits. The museum features twelve exhibit buildings situated over 18-acres of Miles River waterfront in St. Michaels, MD.

The new admission structure went into effect March 1, and is priced at $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, and $6 for children ages 6-17. CBMM members and children under five receive free general admission. Festival admission is excluded.

“Admission rates have been the same since 2007, when the museum had much less to offer,” said CBMM President Langley Shook. “Today, our visitors often tell us they need more than a single day to experience everything that’s out here. I think our new two-day admission gives them an opportunity to explore it all.”

CBMM began in 1965 in a single historic house along St. Michaels harbor, before acquiring its iconic landmark, the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, in 1966. Since then, the museum has expanded its property along Fogg’s Cove, with its permanent exhibit buildings now including the Steamboat Building, Bay History, Waterfowling, At Play on the Bay, Small Boat Shed, Boat Shop, Oystering on the Chesapeake, Watermen’s Wharf, Mitchell House, and more.

With a mission to preserve and explore the history, environment, and people of the Chesapeake Bay, CBMM offers changing exhibits, demonstrations, boat rides on the Miles River, and annual festivals celebrating Chesapeake Bay culture, boats, seafood, and history.
