Newly renovated in 2011, the Museum preserves the people, culture, and heritage of Chincoteague.  An 1866 First order Fresnel lens greets visitors in the front hall and at night winks back at the current light atop its former home on the Assateague Lighthouse.  New exhibits display life on this island from before man to the present.  There are 25 million year old wooly mammoth fossils and shell fossils.  The shipwrecks and treasures exhibit features items found in the waters around the Island.  The Guilded Age exhibit depicts life in the late 19th century when wealthy merchants owned large Victorian homes on the Island.  A new acquisition that will delight visitors both old and young is the 1880 volunteer fire company hand pumper.  Early sailing history comes to life in a models exhibit of vessels used on our bays, creeks, and channels.  Videos of the oystering industry and the 1962 flood enhance exhibits featuring both.  The Museum is open from April through Thanksgiving weekend daily, except Mondays.  It is an easy stop going or coming from the Refuge just on the left as you head into the park.

The Saxis Island Museum is located next to  the Saxis Post office

Saxis Island, which is actually a peninsula, is connected to the mainland by the Saxis Wildlife Management Area, a 5,500 acre network of pines, marshland and creeks. It is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay in North Accomack County. Captain John Smith and his crew were the first Europeans to view and map the coastline of the Saxis peninsula in 1608. At its peak, between 1910 and 1920, the population of Saxis was over 600. Its current population is 220.

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.
