Help our mission at the Museum to share the history of Chincoteague!
Welcome! Inside the Museum of Chincoteague Island you’ll discover the 1st Order Fresnel Lens from the Assateague Island Lighthouse, the iconic Chincoteague ponies known as Misty and Stormy, models of vessels that plied the Chincoteague waters long ago, items that washed ashore from shipwrecks, a decoy carver’s workshop, and oral histories, documents, and artifacts that tell the story of Chincoteague Island life throughout it’s long and varied existence.
To stay informed about the Museum, please join our mailing list. You will receive an email newsletter and announcements about events and programs.
The museum is currently closed for the winter but we are busy redesigning our gift shop, sprucing up and creating new exhibits, updating the Chincoteague Island Today wall, developing events and programs, revitalizing our volunteer program, and so much more. We look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen the weekend of April 8, 2022.
Stay tuned for more information here and on our Facebook page.
