What to Expect
The Bayshore Center at Bivalve is unlike any other museum you will visit. Your experience will begin miles before you arrive. Observe the natural beauty of the area, take note of the homes and streets. Observe our neighbors – watermen, scientists, and oystermen – as they go about their work. These people and this community are all part of the experience of the Bayshore Center at Bivalve.
When you arrive in our parking lot, look around. Everything you see is an exhibit. We encourage you to wander and ask those who pass by questions. For more information on our exhibits click here.
