Tilghman's Watermen's Museum

Tilghman's Watermen's Museum

The Tilghman's Watermen's Museum, located in an old barber shop, commemorates the community's history.

Tilghman’s Watermen’s Museum is located at 5778 Tilghman Island Road on the main strip of Tilghman Island, just past the post office.

The museum is a non-profit community-based endeavor designed to commemorate the work of generations of Tilghman's Island watermen and their families and others who supported them, and to strengthen the Island community by establishing a new institution centered on heritage-related activities.
