C&D Canal Waterfront Museum Now Open on Weekends!

outsdie museumChesapeake City: Several years ago, the Army Corps of Engineers created a stunning historical tribute to the infamous C&D Canal. Starting from its origins as a canal dug by the hands and engineering ingenuity of over 1500 men, the museum bears witness to the millions of east-west passages that have gone through the historic canal and the stories they tell. Housed in its original early 1800s canal structures, this gem of a museum with moving exhibits and video offers a amazing look at the history, beauty and wildlife on what is still the third most active canal on the planet.

The museum has been continually open to the public on weekdays but not on Saturdays and Sundays for quite some time due to weekend scheduling conflicts at the government property. The town of Chesapeake City stepped up to fill the need in order to add to tourists’ enjoyment of the area when they visit the charming historic town. Working with the cooperation of the Chesapeake Inn, the Bayard House and Schaefers Canal House restaurants for personnel, Chesapeake City’s Tourism department is coordinating the staffing of the museum on Saturdays and Sundays from the hours of 11 am until 4 pm.

Don’t miss it. Bring the kids. Bring the grandparents. Children love the beautiful models of ships, canal lock animation, videos, and the ancient fossils on display found at the first canal dig; Seniors get excited over the engineering, the ingenuity of the tools and design, and the nostalgia of it all. It’s a terrific family destination.

Weekend visitors are asked to enter the museum by using the marked Pedestrian Gate below the museum on the Army Corps grounds – at the intersection of Second Street and Bethel Road just west of the Chesapeake Inn. Parking areas marked with Canal Museum signage are located just outside the gate. Admission to the museum is free. ADA Accessible.
