Make sure you visit on a Saturday or the first Sunday of the month and take the water taxi to the island and visit the lighthouse.

For such an important event in history, this museum and accompanying buildings leave much to be desired. There is a minimal amount of exhibits in the museum. The only other significant thing, I think, is the one-room school house dating to 1890. The island is...More

This is a small museum on some of Southern Maryland's finest waterfront. There is a charge for the museum and a separate charge for a ride to the Island. There was a friendly staff and lots of history of the area. Beautiful to walk around...More

The facilities are well maintained. The brief movie is worth watching. Displays are nicely set up. The staff is helpful and informed. The water taxi is seasonal and depends on the state of the weather. Parking is adequate. Families will find room for children to...More

We came during their Heritage Day; the Museum and Water Taxi ride was free that day, a value for a large family. The museum was small, but well done, and had an area that allowed children to touch a taxidermied bear and beaver, along with...More

The first thing you need to know is when you arrive at Colton's Point and see the museum, there is no place to park; that is, unless you know to drive a little further along the waterfront, turn left at the first street you come...More

While exceptionally significant, as the place relates to colonial American history, this museum pales in comparison to the Piney Point Lighthouse Museum. If presented with an either/or choice, choose Piney Point. Beware - the water taxis to the actual island only run from 10-3, in...More

It's been going every year for about 18 years. There are about 20 sponsors and about ten vendors. The proceeds from the festival benefit the Friends of the Museums, etc. I hope you have fun!
