Had planned a trip to Maryland's southern western shore as a get away for my wife and I to visit lighthouses and wineries. I had checked the lighthouses website and it said that it was open daily at 10 AM and the museum also. Arrived at 10:30 AM and walked the grounds and looked at the lighthouse but was disappointed... 更多
We really didn't tour the attractive lighthouse or museum due to time commitments, but we did walk the grounds and enjoy the fishing pier on site. The site is adjacent to the oil pipeline and storage tank complex so occasionally tankers are anchored at the dock while dumping off or loading on oil. We happened to see a tanker at... 更多
This is a small waterman's museum featuring the lighthouse and the lighthouse keepers house. There were several very interesting exhibits in the static museum, as well. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse but the steep stairs are not for the faint of heart or those leary of heights. A great view makes it worthwhile, though.
Pay the entrance fee to enjoy the small (but informative) museum and climb up the lighthouse. Do not miss their boat exhibit (separate building) which is excellent. Docents do a great job. Lovely park and pier offer charming water views. Interesting interpretation about a Nazi submarine will fascinate all ages. We spent about and hour here and enjoyed every minute!
I agonized (I really did, I take these reviews very seriously) over giving this attraction "only" a "3" -- this little place has much going for it. Basically you've got a stubby little lighthouse with a moderately interesting history, the keeper's house, a tiny visitor center, and a "maritime museum." Grounds, exhibits, and facilities, all beautifully maintained. Staff friendly and... 更多
I don't know why people complain that the lighthouse is short. You get a great view of the surrounding area. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. The lighthouse museum is full of artifacts and stories about this and other lighthouses on the rivers. The boat museum is full of interesting historical boats and information. The park is very pleasant.... 更多
We went looking for it and found a big house behind it. It might have been a museum or something but the lighthouse was so short you couldn't see it past the house. It being off season, we felt like we'd be intruding on someone so passed.
I had visited the park a few times, but this was my first time climbing the lighthouse. In case you are wondering, it is not very high. You will be at the top in less than a minute. The tour guide was great. She was dressed in a seaman's attire. The downside is that they are only open seasonally mainly... 更多
