CBMM’s holiday open house is December 12
ST. MICHAELS — From noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is inviting the public to celebrate the holidays with an open house that will include libations, light refreshments, caroling, store discounts, free gift wrapping and door prizes for CBMM members.
During the event, shoppers will receive a one-day-only, 25 percent total discount on their total Museum Store purchases. Members also will have the opportunity to purchase half-priced gift memberships for new members to the museum, excluding life memberships.
Each year, the museum’s historic structures, exhibition buildings and boats are decorated in holiday greenery, created by CBMM volunteers and staff. The museum also lights the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse and a small tree set atop the mast of the 1909 seven-log crab dredger, Old Point.
Over the winter, the museum is restoring the 1912 river tug Delaware and building a new, five-log canoe, named Caroline. All work is being done in full public view in the shipyard.
The Dec. 12 event is free and open to the public, with ample parking and no need for reservations. For more information, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
