The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) at St. Michael’s wants to hear from you! They are currently reviewing their folklife programming/exhibitions and want to hear directly from the community about what you want to see. Folklife includes living traditions that are passed down over generations, including: work practices and tool craft, community activities, family life and daily routine, material culture, celebrations and rituals, story and song, foodways, cultural expression through artistic forms, and more. Whether you and your people have called the Chesapeake home for a decade, a generation, a century or more, your traditions are part of the fabric of our region’s culture.


If you have a story you feel has not been adequately represented in traditional museum displays, please consider completing this 10-question survey. It should only take about 15 minutes of your time and will help the CBMM better connect exhibits, programming, performances, and more to the lives and unique histories of its guests. For those who complete the survey, you have the option to enter a drawing for a $75 Amazon gift card. 


Thank you for your time and consideration. This survey is available from now until September 30th. We hope you’ll share the survey link within your network so that CBMM hears a wide variety of perspectives.
