Excellent museum with aquariums, light house, and boat rides. It also hosts a summer concert series.
So much to do! Tour the lighthouse, see the sting rays and sea life, say hi to the otters, check out the exhibits, shop the gift shop. Many weekends they offer concerts too.
A fabulous local museum for all ages focusing on the Chesapeake Bay, Patuxent River, maritime history. Favorites, the river otters and the Drum Point lighthouse!
The Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons explains and interprets the physical history of Southern Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay with hands-on, interactive experience and popular river otter exhibit. The museum’s annual Sharkfest takes place on the second Saturday in July, and riverboat cruises depart…

“Nice atmosphere with occasional live music. Bring your own snacks. We like this place very much but recommend the beer and not the wine ”

“The Sculpture Garden at Annmarie is comprised of 30 acres of forests, fields, and meadows situated alongside St. John's Creek. A paved walking path weaves throughout the forest and provides a serene setting for the large collection of outdoor sculpture. The Sculpture Garden is a great place to take a walk, or ride bikes, and is pet-friendly throughout the year, except during special events. Take time to explore the art and nature at Annmarie. In 1991, Francis and Ann M. Koenig donated this property to Calvert County with the intention that it be developed into a sculpture garden. Over the next decade, their dream took shape as six works of art were installed on the thirty acre property. These diverse pieces are fully integrated into the natural setting of the Garden and provide the opportunity to develop an appreciation for the seasonal changes inherent in outdoor art. In addition to the sculpture, the walking paths were created and the allies, or hallways, were cleared. The lovely allies allow visitors to look across Annmarie and have created areas for the installation of sculpture. In 2003, Annmarie became a member of the Smithsonian Institution's Affiliations Program. This program has allowed the Garden to borrow more than twenty-five pieces of sculpture form the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden. In 2008, the Arts Building and the Studio School opened, allowing Annmarie to dramatically expand its programs and activities. ”

“Perfect hiking for all levels that end at the sandy Chesapeake Bay, only a 10 minute drive from Rousby Hall. Kids will enjoy hunting for sharks teeth along the beach.”
