The center of Virginia oyster country is right here in Middlesex County. If you like your oysters fresh, fried, roasted, raw, steamed, baked, grilled, in a stew, soup, or stuffing, you’ve come to the right place. Or maybe you even like them in the river or bay filtering 50 or so gallons of saltwater a day. Middlesex is the right place for that as well. Each of our museums has exhibits dedicated to telling oyster stories and we’re sure you’ll like them.
