Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum, .2 mi. s. of SR 260 on SR 261, chronicles the history of Chesapeake Beach, once a glittering early 20th-century resort. A diorama of the boardwalk and resort can be seen. The museum occupies the railway station, the only surviving building from the town's heyday. Exhibits include memorabilia and artifacts from the resort and railroad era; historical photographs and documents; and fragments of rolling stock. Special summer exhibits also are available.
Educational programs and events are offered, including a summer concert series.
