“Christmas in St. Michaels is such a wonderful holiday celebration,” said CBMM Vice President of Communications Tracey Munson. “We wanted to offer free admission to not only support the event’s good works, but to also give everyone an opportunity to visit the museum free of charge.”

Established in 1987 as an annual fundraiser supporting the St. Michaels community, Christmas in St. Michaels features several events including a parade, tour of homes, gingerbread house competition, marketplace and sweet shoppe, and more.

During the three day event, free admission will be given to all CBMM visitors. General admission is otherwise $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $6 for children 6-17, and free for museum members and kids under 6.

The museum features a new “Push and Pull: Life on Chesapeake Bay Tugboats” exhibit as well as a floating fleet of historic vessels, the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, and many hands-on exhibits that share the stories of how people live, work, and play along the Chesapeake Bay. The museum is open 10am to 4pm seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. For more information, visit or call 410-745-2916.
