  • This small museum is dedicated to the nautical items in the area. There is a master builder of model ships who is friendly and will answer all questions. Definite must see.  more »
  • Although small the exhibits are informative and entertaining The views of the York River are great. Look for the windmill next to it  more »
  • The church sent out a request for volunteers to help out at the museum. I took the opportunity to visit and help. We worked on programs for the summer evenst. It looked like it would be a lot of fun. ...  more »

  • The museum was about the history of men and ships that spent their working life on the Chesapeake...it was very informative and the ladies that worked there were nice
  • As we walked into the Museum, we were lectured by an employee that we HAD to stay in the gift shop unless we paid $5 to see the rest of the Museum. We paid the $5 per person and saw the whole Museum in under 10 minutes. I would recommend skipping the Watermen's Museum unless you have a strong interest in seeing just a few items Watermen used years ago.
  • Our daughter was married at the Watermen's Museum on Saturday, July 9, 2016. The venue was exactly what she envisioned for her wedding and although it was hot, it was the most beautiful day and perfect spot for her wedding.
  • Good boats
  • Great education
