A friend and I visited the Academy in the Spring on 2015. We joined a tour led by a local whose son had attended the Academy. She was a wonderful guide, very upbeat and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to be there on a parade practice day and got to see the midshipman in uniform drilling and marching. I thoroughly... More

This is an incredible installation. Beautiful campus, outstanding museum, well stocked gift shop. Tradition, history and patriotism are proudly everywhere. Be prepared to walk, climb stairs and be reminded of our great America.

We spent a couple of hours here after tiring from the hustle and bustle of the crowded store fronts of Chesapeake Bay. I suggest one plan ahead and book a tour with the Academy since were saw many groups with very interesting commentators seeing the sites. We strolled among the buildings and enjoyed the free Navy museum. It was a... More

Fee entry. Impressive buildings, including the chapel and the John Paul Jones crypt. Don't miss the museum, which has some unique and world class exhibits, including a superb collection of ships' models. Would have loved to stay longer.

We enjoyed touring the USNA, but we went at the worst possible time (early June, after commencement when the seniors are gone, the underclassmen are off on assignments, and the plebes have not yet arrived). So there were no students to be seen, no noon formation, etc. There's frankly not much on the tour that you can't see on your... More

My son and I stopped in quickly before we left town. We were visiting for a lacrosse game and wanted to check it out. We pretty much just walked through the visitors center and went to the gift shop. As a Marine, I got to stock up on a few things that I don't see everyday. I look forward to... More

Truly breathtaking grounds and atmosphere makes you appreciate our service men and women. Make sure to visit the Chapel and see the Tiffany stained glass windows along with the crypt of John Paul Jones on the lower level. The Museum in Preble Hall is outstanding with many naval artifacts including an extensive collection of model ships carved from bone by... More

Some places just never get old, the Naval Academy is such a place for us. So much history, the men and women that fight for our freedom, beautiful building and the feel of walking around old town. We visited the navy store as always and walked around outside to watch the water and the people enjoying their day!

We were guided by a retired Naval Academy graduate. He was very informative and eager to answer any and all questions that were asked. The grounds are gorgeous and the academy is amazing. It was a wonderful tour.
