The people who made their living on the water.
Opportunities for recreation on the Bay.
We can all work to preserve the Chesapeake Bay.
The mission of Captain Avery Museum is to celebrate the diversity of our community and engage it in activities that explore connections to the Chesapeake Bay through the prism of our historic home and waterfront property.
Events are how the Captain Avery Museum provides an important service to the
community. We appreciate the support of our Captain Avery Museum sponsors, partners, grantors and collaborators
The generosity of our members and volunteers make all this possible at the Captain Avery Museum. Events, programs and fundraisers are all done with community support. This is how we fulfill our mission.
Captain Avery Museum hosts cultural events such as music, painting and presentations by local authors and local museums.
You can be involved in our local efforts. Take a painting class, attend a musical performance or a lecture. Opportunities abound!
We could not exist without our army of happy volunteers.
Help out at an event, in the office, or in the garden!
