Cape Charles Museum

Cape Charles Museum

Visitors are invited to explore the various artifacts that have been collected throughout the museum. Models of sailing vessels, barges, and ferries mix with old railroad cars and many other vestiges of the past, bring the history of this bayside railroad town to life. A huge Busch-Sulzer engine and Westinghouse generator remain the centerpiece of the exhibits, and can be run in demo mode for visitors upon request. Academic and sports paraphernalia are included in the museum as well.

We hope you enjoy our work.
