Free admission to the 18-acre waterfront campus and new exhibits of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD, is being offered to Delmarva residents during the Museum’s July 11 – 13 Delmarva Days recognition.
“The breezes from the Miles River are blowing so nicely on our waterfront right now,” explained CBMM Vice President of Communications Tracey Munson. “We thought it would be great to share this great public space with all our neighbors from throughout the Delmarva Peninsula.”
During the three days, free admission will be given to anyone showing a Delmarva address on a piece of identification or mail. General admission is otherwise free for museum members and kids under 6, or $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for children 6-17. As a Blue Star Museum, CBMM is also offering free admission every day through Labor Day for active military and their families.
The museum features new art and decoy exhibits as well as a floating fleet of historic vessels, the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse to climb on, and many hands-on exhibits that share the stories of how people live, work, and play along the entire Chesapeake Bay. The museum is open 9am to 6pm seven days a week, with picnics and dogs welcome. For more information, visit the museum in St. Michaels, online at www.cbmm.org, or call 410-745-2916.
