Our mission is to preserve and interpret our rich cultural heritage, maritime industries, and history, as well as the ecology of the lower Susquehanna River and Upper Chesapeake Bay.
The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum is situated where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay, on a freshwater wetland, tidal cove, and small forested area adjacent to the city waterfront (our promenade). Teeming with numerous species of flora and fauna, and having highly navigable waters, this unique environmental setting has been the perfect backdrop for generations of inhabitants, from the earliest Native tribes over 10,000 years ago, to the first European colonists in the 1600s, to today's thriving community of the 21st century.
Our museum is a 10,000 square foot, three-story modern building, which includes two galleries on the main floor that also function as public and private event spaces. Our ground floor supports a working boat shop as well as our Environmental Center, which houses a gallery, indoor and outdoor classroom and research/teaching laboratory.
We are within the Concord Point Heritage Corridor, which is Havre de Grace's historic district spanning five waterfront acres. We are also a designated attraction on the National Park Service's John Smith and Star Spangled Banner Trails.
We would like to invite you to explore all that we have to offer, from history lectures and classes on boating and fishing, to our many concerts and environmental programs!
