This tiny Eastport riverfront museum is due to reopen its McNasby Oyster Company Building after extensive reconstruction was required following Hurricane Isabel in 2003. It has also added boat tours of the picturesque Thomas Point Lighthouse. The museum is based in two buildings, the McNasby Oyster Company building and the Barge House, with exhibits on local watermen, the oyster fittingly enough, and the Thomas Point Light. The lighthouse trip, at $70 a person, includes a half-hour boat ride to the Chesapeake Bay lighthouse and a tour of the 1875 screw-pile lighthouse -- the last one left in its original location and still a navigational aid. Tours are scheduled on warm weekends. Reservations are required; see the website for details. Because construction was ongoing in 2007 and into 2008, it's best to call ahead to confirm hours.
