The museum’s exhibits and new orientation film trace the history of St. Clement’s Island and the English colonization in Maryland with emphasis on the landing of the first 140 colonists on near-by St. Clements Island in 1634.  The museum also holds artifacts that tell the story of life on the Potomac River in earlier times.  On the grounds is a 19th-century one-room school used until the 1960s and relocated from nearby Charlotte Hall.  Maryland Civil War Trails Site.  The museum has a pier and docking facilities, and offers seasonal water taxi service to the island, weather permitting.  Also visit the reconstructed Blackistone Lighthouse on St. Clements Island. Group and student tours available.  Call for dates of water taxi service and Blackistone Lighthouse tours.
