Even under less than ideal weather conditions, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum bravely opened the doors to their new Welcome Center on Saturday. The 12,000-square-foot, fully ADA-accessible building overlooking Fogg’s Cove was designed to provide guests with a warm welcome to campus with three exhibition spaces, reception area, restrooms, and the new Museum Store.
During the Grand Opening ceremony, CBMM staff and friends commemorated the years-in-the-making project, recognize all who have made it possible, and officially open the Welcome Center.
Afterward, guests are invited to explore the new building while also getting a taste of “Winter on the Chesapeake” through themed activities led by CBMM staff and community partners.
Spy special agent 86 was there to capture surveillance material.
