Our Mission

Mission Statement:
The Calvert Marine Museum is a public, non-profit, educational, regionally oriented museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, research, and interpretation of the culture and natural history of Southern Maryland. We are dedicated to the presentation of our three themes: regional paleontology, estuarine life of the tidal Patuxent River and adjacent Chesapeake Bay, and maritime history of these waters. The museum is part of Calvert County Government.

Calvert Marine Museum Society
The Calvert Marine Museum Society was formed in 1984 as a non-profit membership organization to support the museum through donations, fundraising and events. The Society has nearly 3,000 members throughout the country. Society staff members operate the Museum Store, write grants, handle membership, and manage fundraising events such as the Waterside Music Series. The members of the Board of Governors also serve as the Board of Directors for the Society.
