Family Activities

The Calvert Marine Museum is a family museum and every day is an opportunity to create family memories. To take full advantage of our offerings, we encourage you to consider membership in the museum. We offer special programming during all school holidays. Be sure to check out the Calendar of Events for details. 

Public Programming

There is something scheduled almost every day at the museum. There are trained docents in the Discovery Room at the touch tank, in the Skates and Rays exhibit, and in the Paleontology Prep Lab. The Drum Point Lighthouse is open, frequently with guided tours. You may also see an aquarist feeding the animals - check with the admissions desk for details.
