Each year, CBMM’s historic structures, exhibition buildings, and boats are decorated in holiday greenery, created by CBMM volunteers and staff. CBMM also lights the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, and a small tree set atop the mast of the 1909 seven-log crab dredger, Old Point.

CBMM is currently restoring another historic log-bottomed boat, the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood, with all work being done in full public view through the re-launch on October 27, 2018 at CBMM’s OysterFest. Updates and more about the project are at ednalockwood.org.

The December 6, 2017 event is free and open to the public, with ample parking and no need for reservations. For more information, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
