The Watermen's Museum invites you to become a member of our Museum or to renew your membership. Our mission is to preserve the heritage of those who worked the water in the past and today and the methods and tools they used. We present current uses of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, ecological needs, and preservation. We conduct underwater mapping and exploration of York River bottom, to include examination of historic Revolutionary War and Civil War ships and artifacts. We provide artifact displays, educational classes, tours and demonstrations, hands-on camps and programs, and numerous special events.
