The museum campus is the site of the last remaining oyster packing plant in the area, the McNasby Oyster Company building and is dedicated to educating the public and school students alike, of the importance of protecting, cultivating, and stimulating the Chesapeake Bay's oyster population. The museum hosts many school groups with it's interactive exhibits, waterman boats displayed to show their working parts, a giant interactive clam and an 850 gallon tank filled with Chesapeake Bay water and some of it's inhabitants. The museum hosts meetings, community events, lectures and concerts, and is the launching point for the tours to the iconic Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse -- the most famous symbol of the upper Chesapeake Bay.
