Our Mission


The Reedville Fishermen’s Museum, the cultural arm of the Greater Reedville Association, Inc., is dedicated to supporting educational, cultural, and recreational activities that improve the life of the area residents and visitors.

The Museum’s mission is to acquire, document, interpret and display materials that are historically important to the lower Chesapeake Bay – with special emphasis on activities relating to Reedville fisheries and the lives of the region’s watermen – and to establish educational programs to interpret this maritime heritage.

The Museum is a 501(c)3, non-profit institution that receives funding from a wide variety of businesses, granting agencies, members, visitors, and special events. We host several important fund-raising programs each year so that we can meet our budget expectations.
