Last Chance! CBMM Will be Closing Two Exhibits Soon

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum has announced that it will be closing two exhibits: Push and Pull: Life on Chesapeake Bay Tugboats and Navigating Freedom: The War of 1812 on the Chesapeake. Both floors of the Steamboat Building, which currently houses these exhibits, will be used for the upcoming exhibition A Broad Reach: 50 Years of Collecting, commemorating the museum’s 50th anniversary. The exhibition will have a private opening on 22 May, the date of the museum’s founding in 1965, and then open to the public on 23 May.

Visitors have until 5 January to see the two retiring exhibits.
