This extraordinary gem of a museum traces the history of the world’s third busiest shipping canal. The museum is in its second season of being available to the public on the weekends and seasonal visitors to Chesapeake City are excited to be able to tour the facility and enjoy the waterfront park-like setting. Owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, this waterfront historic site is located inside the original 18th century pump house that once controlled the water levels in the locks along the first edition of the canal. Interactive displays, fascinating videos and more enchant visitors of all ages. These special weekend hours are made possible through sponsorships by the Chesapeake Inn and Marina, Schaefers Restaurant and Canal Bar, The Bayard House, and the Town of Chesapeake City. Representatives from the staffs of restaurants are the Museum hosts on the weekends.
