Plan a winter trip to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels which is free on Fridays during the month of February.
“Winter offers a great time to visit the museum,” says René Stevenson, the museum’s vice president of constituent services. “We have a number of inside exhibitions to enjoy, and our boatyard is busiest in the colder months with restoration work on our historic fleet of Chesapeake vessels.”
Admission to the museum includes access to the 1879 Hooper Straight Lighthouse and other historic structures as well as several exhibition buildings along the CBMM’s 18-acre, Miles River waterfront campus.
Friday admission in February is free for all museum guests. General admission is otherwise good for two consecutive days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, $6 for children 6-17, and free for children younger than 6. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. For details, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
