Improved Exhibit - The Nun Buoy

We have improved our nun buoy exhibit - it now has a fresh coat of paint, and is installed in a stand to display it better.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the many volunteers who helped out with this project, to Mr. Chris Scarlato for assisting with the heavy lift crane, and to Maryland Portable Concrete and Butz & Sons Concrete. Everyone did a wonderful job, and we all agree it looks so much better now.



New Exhibit - Coming Soon


We are in the process of building an exhibit in our main gallery about the steamship The City of Norfolk... Read all about it in our Summer Newsletter!

We have also recently added signage to two of our outdoor exhibits, the fog bell and the shad shack.
