Dedicated to preserving Southern Maryland heritage, the museum’s educational programs serve over 25,000 people each year. Visitation topped 87,000 last year and that number grows consistently. The waterfront location and nearby Calvert Cliffs provide the perfect setting for the environmental and cultural interpretation of the Patuxent River, Chesapeake Bay, and surrounding area.

Join with colleagues and co-workers to form a powerful community of caring and pledge your support for the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area.
