Thanks to a generous grant from the Maryland Heritage Area Authority/Maryland Historical Trust, and support from The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners, the Friends of CBRM, the Town of Chesapeake Beach, and private donations, the museum’s new exhibit has been completed.We invite you to join the Friends of the Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum, a group that supports the museum through volunteering, advocacy, and fundraising. And mostly, we want you to watch for updates.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

All Aboard!
