Discovery Room 

Spring Break Banner 2021

In the Discovery Room, visitors can search for real 8 – 20 million-year-old fossils. A computer touch screen helps you identify your find and our younger visitors get to take one home.

In a model of the Cove Point Lighthouse, children will feel inspired to climb the tower to turn on the light, then enjoy a book in the keeper's cottage.

Future boat captains will delight in adventures aboard a skiff that was built in the museum's boat shop. Children can raise and lower the sail and steer using the rudder.

The Life in the Bay exhibit offers visitors an up close look at some of the curious creatures in the Chesapeake Bay and nearby Atlantic Ocean, including horseshoe crabs, diamondback terrapins, sea stars, and sea urchins.
Be sure to look for the hidden pictures in the mural!
