This is a typical small town museum. It's very small and the collection is of mixed interest. It's amazing that some of the pieces have survived, but many are just old stuff. The interpretation is indifferent and the attempt at themes sometimes a bit strained. If you want to know a little bit about the history of the Eastern Shore... More

They change the exhibits frequently. This is a worthy organization to support. There is a parking lot along the side of the building. There is a really nice garden behind the museum to stroll through.

Despite information at the Vistors Center to the opposite, the museum was closed when we got there. Staff at the museum explained that they should have updated their hours. Despite that, they turned on the lights and allowed us to self-tour the museum. It is small, but very well done.

We had the most delightful hour at this small museum. It's "only" two rooms, but it has been totally upgraded/modernized and now is simply not to be missed. Our hostess was a long-time resident of Easton and the Eastern Shore and added to our visit immensely. The new technology--flat screens with the most amazing collection of Eastern Shore photography--makes you... More

Really enjoyed this gem of a museum located in an historic old home just across the street from the gardens. Small, but very informative and fun.

Talbot County's intriguing history is presented in a high-tech experience that lets visitors explore at a relaxed pace. On section shows how the County's geography - miles of waterfront surrounding verdant farms and forests - has influenced its growth. The second, possibly more fascinating section, focuses on some of the people who have made an enduring impact, from Frederick Douglass... More

In October 2015 this organization moved into a new building. The antique shop moved, also. The houses are no longer open for tours. Everything is different, except the garden. All reviews prior to that date are now irrelevant.

Small but worth a short visit. Meander down the lovely brick sidewalks of Easton and spend a bit of time in this sweet little museum.
