Calvert Marine Museum
More Details:
The museum also owns the nearby J.C. Lore Oyster House and the operational Cove Point Lighthouse. The oyster house is within a half mile of the museum. It offers a first-hand view of the tools used by local watermen to harvest fish, clams, eels, crabs and oysters. The Cove Point Lighthouse is located at Cove Point on the Chesapeake Bay, just north of Solomons Island in Calvert County. It is currently a functioning navigation aid and it is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard. However, it is owned by the Calvert Marine Museum. Tours and access to the lighthouse are only available through the Museum.
