Sharing your culture carries your experience to new places. Tell your story! Immigrants from Latin America are Culture Carriers. Inside the museum, we have created an exhibit of interest to immigrants as well as the general public about how culture is rooted in places, but also is transported to new places.
Black Waterman Experience
The seafood industry for which the Chesapeake Bay is renowned would not be what it is today without the contributions of generations of African Americans. Outside the museum our kid-friendly, handicapped accessible boat structure gives visitors the opportunity to get into the waterman character. Here you will learn more from a Black Waterman (re-enactor Kingston Creek, Jr.) who shares his story of rising from slavery to Sharecropping the Sea.
