What a cool place to visit! The architecture is gorgeous. Walking around and seeing the MIDS is fun, especially when they are engaged in some organized activity. Don't miss Bancroft Hall so that you can see a sample room that shows you how the MIDS are housed. The ecumenical chapel is gorgeous. The waterfront area where all the sailboats are... More

Have been here before and the beauty and import of this campus do not cease to amaze me. You can take a tour or wander around yourself which we chose to do. Make sure to go into the buildings that are available to the public, the chapel is amazing and definitely drop by the museum. (the gift shop also has... More

Take a guided tour of "The Yard" and enjoy the beautiful buildings and grounds, hear the history of the Naval Academy told by experienced volunteers. Don't miss going to the museum on the grounds, and see John Paul Johns tomb, go to church at the chapel if you are there on a Sunday too. Check USNA website to see if... More

We came to Annapolis on a whim to visit a restaurant we'd heard about, and decided to visit the Naval Academy. There is a security check-point, but it was handled pleasantly by all. The campus itself is gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The Chapel sadly was closed for a wedding, but Bancroft Hall and Dahlgreen Hall were open and amazing to... More

i loved the tour. The guide shared the stories of what the midshipmen go through to get their degree. The dormitory is incredible. The whole campus places you in another life, one of service and duty to your country. It is a discipline of commitment and perseverance. The facilities are great as is the setting. This is not an athletic... More

They have tours about an hour 15 minutes long, cost is $10.50. My husband and I took the self guided tour. They give you a map at the information desk. We took our time and enjoyed it very much.

Beautiful campus. Tour guide was terrific. The tour was supposed to be about an hour and fifteen minutes, but ours lasted over an hour and a half. I would suggest going in the middle of the day during the week when the midshipmen are more in evidence. I went on Sunday and it was a little quiet. Lots of walking... More

Briefly viewed the area while apartment hunting. It was very clean and security was tight. Pedestrians can go in at several different gates. Hope to view more next time we are in town
