A world-class collection of traditional Chesapeake Bay watercraft, featuring 2 on the National Register of Historic Places: The Claud Somers, a 42'skipjack; and The Elva C., a 55' deck boat; are dockside. A number of educational programs, events, tours and lectures are offered throughout the year for groups of all ages.
