Visit the museum when the water taxi is running

We went on a weekend in September and the boat ride was in a small water taxi (the video in the museum showed a larger boat that I assume they use when it's busier). The museum... read more

It is the very place where the state of Maryland established. The unspoiled beauty begins on the ferry ride to the island, and it is left in its normal state. The lighthouse is great.

St. Clement's Island, where the Ark and Dove landed, is located one-half mile off the shore from Coltons Point, Md. You can take a boat ride (taxi) to get there and back; the cost is minimal. After touring the island, be sure to visit the St. Clement's Museum in Coltons Point. Departing from the water taxi, you walk a long... More

This was another lighthouse that my wife has on her bucket list. It is on an island about 5 minutes off shore by boat. The light is an accurate reproduction due to the first one being destroyed. There were many pictures and information inside showing the past and describing the job the keeper did. We have seen so many light... More

A friend and I spent a Saturday afternoon in August touring the museum and taking the ferry out to the island. The museum has some really interesting exhibits along with a 14 minute movie about the history of St. Clement's Island and the Blackistone Lighthouse. As of 2014, the cost for museum admission and round trip ferry ride was $7... More

The St Clement's Island Museum is very well done with wonderful exhibits. We especially enjoyed all the information presented on the Ark and Dove and their voyages.

We visited here for the Blessing of the Fleet which is held every October. The fireworks at this event are really amazing. Take a boat over to the island and tour the replica lighthouse. The views of the Potomac River are nice from the top. We did not get to tour the museum on the mainland as we were busy... More

If you're in southern Maryland and you've got a boat, or are willing to pay to take a tour boat out to St. Clement's Island, you are in for a treat. This island has a rich history tied to the founding of Maryland as a colony, which I won't get into here. But suffice it to say that if you're... More

St. Clement's Island Museum is on the mainland and displays the history of the first settlers arriving in Maryland from England. This group of colonist were seeking religious freedom as they could not be Catholics in England. It is an interesting history and made more interesting by a boat ride to the island which is available on weekends. Once you... More

This site is a small museum in a residential community. I found it quaint and interesting. The museum displays are well done and the staff are very friendly. To tour the museum will take about 30-40 minutes.
