Calvert Marine Museum Ribbon Cutting

Colimore Architects recently attended the ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for the new Education Center at the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons, Maryland. Our office lead the design team to renovate and expand the second floor level of the museum to accommodate the offices and teaching needs of the marine center staff. By infilling previously double-high space at the ground level with heavy timber construction to match the original design, the project area was increased to approximately 3,000 SF to include two new classrooms, offices, an accessible restroom and storage space. Modern, durable finishes and built-in laboratory-grade casework along with state-of the-art lighting and AV systems now provide a bright and welcoming space for the County’s continuing efforts of outreach for local marine history and science education.
