The memorial sits across the Severn River from Annapolis and the Naval Academy. The memorial is well designed and offers a historical perspective of WW2. It also has an excellent view of Annapolis. Make the short drive across the Naval Academy bridge, you won't be disappointed.

The memorial was built on a small hill across the river from historic Annapolis on Rt. 450 and can be easily access by Rt. 450 from the city. There are plenty of parking spaces on the site. The wall of names was very well design to capture your feeling while reflecting the thought to pay tribute to those brave soldiers... More

I always encourage travelers coming from the west to go across the Severn River Bridge on Rte 50 (one of the most scenic bodies of water in America) and then go into Annapolis at the next exit onto Governor Ritchie Highway/Rt 450. The WWII is at the top of the hill overlooking Annapolis

The World War II Memorial is just across the Severn River from the Naval Academy. It is a very nice memorial dedicated to the brave men & women who served their country in a time of need. It is well worth the time to stop & pay your respects.

This memorial was beautiful and has a nice setting. It was included in the bus tour from the Visitor's Center. We were able to get out, walk around, and take pictures.

Worth a short visit to walk thru and read of the WWII events. Tablets describe both Atlantic and Pacific actions broadly but do offer very interesting facts.

Nice stop on your journey into or out of Annapolis; the memorial is tastefully done. It offers wonderful panorama views of Annapolis, the waterfront and the academy. Parking is convenient and access is easy.
