About the Upper Bay Museum:

The Upper Bay Museum, located on Walnut Street in the Community Park in North East, MD, houses a large collection of water related articles portraying the heritage of the Upper Bay Area. The museum houses displays of hunting, boating and fishing artifacts native to the Upper Chesapeake Bay. Visitors can trace the history of the waterfowl hunter through exhibits of outlawed gunning rigs and skillfully carved decoys. They can also follow the progress of Bay boating and fishing with many displays of model boats, commercial fishing nets and one of the country’s best collections of marine engines. From the serious market waterfowl hunter to the hardy commercial fisherman, watermen of every description have shaped the culture of this region.

We have a model of an Atlantic Sturgeon that was caught nearby – it’s HUGE! Also, a shotgun that was used by Babe Ruth.
