About Us :

Our Museum, an affiliate member of the Council of American Maritime Museums, is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the maritime history of the lower Chesapeake Bay area and the watermen who have plied their trade here for hundreds of years, and the menhaden industry that has existed in Reedville for over a hundred years.

We accomplish this mission by acquiring, documenting and displaying materials that are historically important to the areas fisheries and the lives of the watermen, and to further educational programs to interpret this maritime heritage.
