Toy Boatbuilding

Toy Boat Building, sponsored by the Patuxent Small Craft Guild, has been part of the museum for over 30 years. Always a highlight at the Maritime Festival in May and Patuxent River Appreciation Days in October, it is now a regular feature of our public programming. On the fourth Saturday of every month, January through October, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, toy boat building is open to anyone. A $2 donation is requested per boat. Admission is required.
