Barrier Islands Center

What is the Barrier Islands Center?  It is a gathering place, graced by weathered porch rockers that welcome you  into an art gallery and gift shop rivaling New York’s finest.   It is a creative educator, grounding small-town children in history and the arts  while big-city kids savor a taste of country life.  It is a museum that shelters yesterday’s culture of the islanders and watermen,  and it is a farm that follows today’s best practices to cultivate the land.  Yet it is, most of all, a storyteller, safeguarding the wisdom of our past  for the sake of the Eastern Shore’s future.

Heart of the Community, Soul of a Culture

Museum open Tuesday through Saturday 10 - 4. (closed holiday weekends)
