Stopped by during the Waterfowl Festival and found this small, but updated museum to be a new and wonderful discovery. The exhibits were excellent, with wonderfully curated artifacts, and excellent explanations. There are large touch screens that make wonderful use of old photos and new...More

This is a typical small town museum. It's very small and the collection is of mixed interest. It's amazing that some of the pieces have survived, but many are just old stuff. The interpretation is indifferent and the attempt at themes sometimes a bit strained....More

They change the exhibits frequently. This is a worthy organization to support. There is a parking lot along the side of the building. There is a really nice garden behind the museum to stroll through.

We had the most delightful hour at this small museum. It's "only" two rooms, but it has been totally upgraded/modernized and now is simply not to be missed. Our hostess was a long-time resident of Easton and the Eastern Shore and added to our visit...More

Really enjoyed this gem of a museum located in an historic old home just across the street from the gardens. Small, but very informative and fun.
