Due to concerns over the COVID 19 virus, we are postponing our opening dates for the Museum, Oyster Cracker Cafe and our 2nd Friday events. However, our gift shop, The Meerwald Mercantile is open NOW for online purchases! All proceeds go to support our educational programing and our mission. Stay tuned! We will keep you posted on upcoming opening dates.
In the meantime, please check out our Virtual Experiences, and follow us on Facebook for daily posts!
What To Do @ Bayshore Center
For the Kids
The Bayshore Center at Bivalve is a good place to unplug and experience the natural beauty of region. We have a pirate boat for children to play on, a scavenger hunt in our museum, and miles of nature trails to explore. Together you and your children can shell bag, a fun family activity that will also help to improve the Delaware Bay and the local economy. Or perhaps you and your children could simply sit quietly on our docks watching the boats pass bye while counting the osprey flying overhead.
The Bayshore Center also offers a variety of formal educational programs. Click below to learn more.
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 – waterman, scientists and oystermen, as they go about their work. These people and this community are all part 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 wonder, knock on doors and ask those who pass by questions. For more information on our exhibits click here.
