Bayside History Museum North Beach Reviews
A Little Bit of Heritage Jan 19, 2009
In a green house not far from the bay, visitors can discover the history of the beach area. Having grown up outside of the area, I enjoyed being able to learn more about North and Chesapeake Beach.
The majority of displays are on the first floor. Glass cases and informational plaques immortalize the defunct Boy Scout Camp Roosevelt and restaurants from the towns' hay days. I especially liked the older panaroma photos in the kitchen area. Mannequins in uniform represent the local fire department. Upstairs is one last room with its paleontology exhibit.
Free although limited parking is available on the street. I'm not sure if the building is handicap accessible. Restrooms are available upstairs.
If you're visiting the beach area in the summer and hit one of the rainy days, this museum will provide about a half hour's worth of distraction. Younger children will probably not be very interested since nothing is hands-on.
Note: the website says the museum is open on Saturday and Sunday; however, the sign out front only mentions Sundays.
