Watermen's Museum - Yorktown, VA
Activities:

Indoor exhibits include workboat models and displays that show the challenge and skills used in crabbing, oystering, clamming, and fishing during the seasonal changes on the Bay

Outdoors, visit the workboats, try your hand at tonging for oysters and see the tools of the trade of the watermen. Also, visit the Boat Shop where voluteers work at restoring workboats.

Our gift shop presents many unique articles related to the Chesapeake Bay and features work of local artists and craftsmen.

Facilities: Restroom available, gift shop, knowledgeable docent at front desk with published guide to the museum exhibits.
Accessibility: We have a ramp on the back of the museum which gives wheel chair bound visitors access to the museum proper. The Carriage House, available for rentals and lectures, has an outside lift to gain access to the deck.
