Tangier History Museum and Interpretive Cultural Center
As a Gateway, Tangier History Museum and Interpretive Cultural Center is ideally situated at the fringe of the marsh, directly on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay. THMICC is a living history museum of Tangier Island and her people who have worked with the island and water for over 250 years. Come and experience the island on foot by walking our self-guided History Trail of over 600 places, important to our heritage. We offer free use of canoes and kayaks to paddle our water trails and follow the route John Smith did 400 years ago, through pristine marsh and home to hundreds of birds and waterfowl. Or visit our museum to see how we have coped with challenges in the past, and continue to do so as our island is battered by erosion, winds and water, and the effects of pollution on the crab harvest.
Hours: Seasonal hours vary.
Fees: Free
