Preserving The Heritage of the Watermen of the Chesapeake Bay
The Watermen’s Museum is a perfect addition to your visit to Virginia’s Historic Triangle of Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Jamestown. Our mission is to demonstrate the role that Chesapeake Bay watermen played in the shaping of our nation through a historical display of crafts and methods of their trade.
The Watermen’s Museum offers educational field trips and Summer camp programs, as well as a volunteer traditional Chesapeake Bay boat building program.
Located on the Yorktown, Virginia waterfront next to the newly developed RiverWalk shopping and dining area. The museum also offers rentals of its beach front patio area for special events and weddings.
