The Saxis Island Museum opened it's doors for the first time on September 7, 2013 in conjunction with a town wide yard sale. The museum, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is located next to the Saxis Post office.

The museum was created to help preserve the history of Saxis Island and to document the lives of the people that made a living on the island and in the surrounding waters of the Chesapeake Bay. While documenting the fading lifestyle of the Saxis Island watermen, the museum will help educate current and future generations on the dangers of misuse of the Chesapeake Bay and its ecosystems.
