New Exhibit Opens at the Calvert Marine Museum

Solomons , MD (11/16/04) - After five years of planning and production, the Calvert Marine Museum is proud to present its newest exhibit, Secrets of the Mermaid’s Purse: Skates and Rays of the Mid-Atlantic. This interactive exhibit provides a wealth of information on the many types of skates and rays that swim in the Chesapeake Bay, and features a large touch tank in which visitors can reach in and touch these fascinating creatures. The exhibit is funded in part by a Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network grant from the National Park Service.

The exhibit is included with the general museum admission, and is free for museum members. Museum hours are from 10:00am until 5:00pm. For more information, please visit the museum’s website at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com or call 410-326-2042.
