Toy Boat Building

Toy Boat Building, sponsored by the Patuxent Small Craft Guild, has been part of the museum for over 30 years. Always a highlight at the Maritime Festival in May and Patuxent River Appreciation Day in October, it is now a regular feature of our public programming.

Make a toy boat from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., with sessions starting on the half hour. A $2 donation per boat is requested; museum admission is required. For ages 5 and up.
