What is the Barrier Islands Center? It is a gathering place, graced by weathered porch rockers that welcome you into an art gallery and gift shop rivaling New York’s finest. It is a creative educator, grounding small-town children in history and the arts while big-city kids savor a taste of country life. It is a museum that shelters yesterday’s culture of the islanders and watermen, and it is a farm that follows today’s best practices to cultivate the land. Yet it is, most of all, a storyteller, safeguarding the wisdom of our past for the sake of the Eastern Shore’s future.
Heart of the Community, Soul of a Culture
Museum open Tuesday through Saturday 10 - 4. (closed holiday weekends)
