Bay Journal Article:

From ancient sharks to modern menaces, museum educates, entertains all ages (April 2010) - When you're running a museum that welcomes more than 70,000 visitors a year, hosts rock stars such as Bob Dylan, and relies on staff members to catch the sea nettles and puffers on display, it's important to have a sense of humor.

Museum lets visitors immerse themselves in life in, on, along water (November 2004) - The sound of the 1,400-pound fog bell comes from a small cassette player, but it makes a strong impression on everyone who tours the Drum Point Lighthouse at the Calvert Marine Museum. Even at its prerecorded level, the bell is loud. Very loud. And lasting. The low-toned vibrations never fade completely before the next round begins. Two strikes, every 15 seconds.
