The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) is offering free admission on Fridays during the month of February. Admission includes access to the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse and numerous exhibits and historic buildings along CBMM’s 18-acre, Miles River waterfront campus in St. Michaels.
“Winter is actually a great time to visit the museum,” said CBMM’s Vice President of Constituent Services René Stevenson. “We’ve got a variety of inside exhibits to enjoy, and our boatyard is busiest in the colder months with restoration work on our historic fleet of Chesapeake vessels.”
Admission will be free each Friday in February for all museum visitors. General admission is otherwise $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $6 for children 6-17, and free for museum members and kids under 6.
The museum features new “Navigating Freedom: The War of 1812 on the Chesapeake” and “Push and Pull: Life on Chesapeake Bay Tugboats” exhibits as well as a floating fleet of historic vessels, the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, and many hands-on exhibits that share the stories of how people live, work, and play along the Chesapeake Bay. The museum is open 10am to 4pm seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
