The Watermen’s Museum Gift Shop

Our Gift Shop is located just inside the doors at the Watermen’s Museum. We are open the same hours as the Museum.

We have an exciting assortment of  over 4,000 items of nautical giftware, work by local artists, books  and children’s toys to spark the imagination. Our book titles appeal to all ages, from activity books for preschoolers, to hard to find titles about the Bay and its history.

We carry works from local artists, including postcards, watercolors and prints. We stock T-shirts  and hoodies in adult and children’s sizes. We also have a wide assortment of souvenirs and jewelry, especially nautical and patriotic-themed.

Come in and check our many souvenir items featuring Yorktown and Watermen motifs not available anywhere else.

Items of special interest: We carry books for young and adults, toys, jewelry, great posters of Chesapeake Bay and Carolina Coast shipwrecks, ship-style brass door plates, hats, shirts, handmade large Yorktown mugs and much more.

And, check out the  “From the Kitchen at Hornsby House in Yorktown” Cookbook, a local cookbook of great recipes from our founder’s family.
