Join Steamboat Era Museum

Help Keep Our Story Alive

The Steamboat Era Museum is the only museum in the country dedicated to telling the story of Chesapeake Bay steamboats and their importance to communities around the bay.

The year SEM is embarking on a game changing period of growth which will bring our gem of a museum national recognition. Our members are a vital part of helping us meet the challenges of 2017, including weekly children's activities, new exhibitions and community outreach.

Your membership is extremely important and will have an immediate impact on our ability to expand and strengthen our capacity.

Won't you please join us in bringing this story to life and preserving our unique heritage? We appreciate your support and our gratitude is without measure.
