The Calvert Marine Museum is a maritime museum located in Solomons, Maryland.

Museum has three main themes:[1]

Among its exhibits are the Drum Point Light, the bugeye Wm. B. Tennison, and the J. C. Lore Oyster House; the latter two are National Historic Landmarks. It also houses artifacts from the old Cedar Point Light, and maintains the Drum Point Light and grounds.

The museum also features several aquatic exhibits including an outdoor habitat for the North American river otter, and indoor aquarium exhibits for the sting ray, skates, the non-native lionfish, and numerous other species native to the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.[2]

From 2018 there is a new exhibit Dinosaurs of Maryland which showcases the diversity and history of Maryland fossils from the age of dinosaurs. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Calvert Marine Museum, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, Prince George’s County Government, and local fossil collectors.[1]
