Welcome to the Calvert Marine Museum

Here you can explore how our Prehistoric Past, Natural Environment, and Maritime Heritage come together to tell a unique story of the Chesapeake Bay. Come discover what there is to see and do on your visit.

In our 29,000 square foot exhibition building you can explore our three permanent exhibit galleries
Marsh Walk
Our Prehistoric Past is a story of tremendous change over millions of years. Ancient creatures swam where the museum now stands
The Drum Point Lighthouse dominates the museum's waterfront, while the Cove Point lighthouse (above) still stands watch.
Lore Oyster House
This 1934 seafood packing house is located six-tenths of a mile south of the main museum campus on Solomons Island Road.
Small Craft Collection
Located next to the Patuxent Small Craft Guild Craft Center, many boats in and out of the water are on display showing the various boats used by watermen over the years.
Patuxent Small Craft Center
The Patuxent Small Craft Guild operates out of this facility, creating and restoring traditional Chesapeake watercraft such as crab skiffs, log canoes, and punts.
Wood Carving Shop
Located near the parking lot is the woodworking shop. Visitors may look into the exhibit fabrication shop to get an idea of this wonderful art craft .
Library / Archives
Reflecting the museum's mission, the Paul L. Berry Reference Library specializes in local maritime history.
River Cruises
Enjoy a relaxing cruise on the river aboard the 'Bugeye',  Wm. B. Tennison or the Skipjack Dee of St. Mary's.
