Upper Bay Museum

Upper Bay Museum

The Upper Bay Museum in historic North East, Md., houses displays of hunting, boating and fishing artifacts native to the upper Chesapeake Bay.

Visitors can trace the history of the waterfowl hunter through exhibits of outlawed gunning rigs and skillfully carved decoys. Visitors can also follow the progress of bay boating and fishing with many boats, nets, and one of the country's best collections of antique marine engines


We hope you enjoy our work.
