We took a walking tour from the visitor's center. A must do!!! Our guide was a wealth of info. We walked around campus and even saw a model dorm room. The tour is about 1 1/2 hours and requires walking.

Tour hours can be found on the naval academy website. Tours leave every 15 minutes, and there is a 15 minute optional video beforehand. Length varies from 1 hour to 90 minutes. The "Noon Formation" was a really cool display of the school before they eat lunch. Tour hits all of the historical details. Very non-committal (we had to leave... More

We enjoy coming here and have visited often. The buildings are beautiful and the town itself is a throw back to another time and place.

My grandson went to the Naval Academy summer camp. They gave the families a short tour and told some of the history of the Academy. This is one of the most scenic places I have ever been. Highly recommend

Wow! We took our own tour instead of the guided tour. We didn't learn as much but were able to proceed at our own pace - slow! LOL. This was really a surprise for me. The architecture is fanatastic, the grounds are really beautiful, and there is an abundance of information there for the taking, about American history, the Continental... More

In lovely Annapolis, the Naval Academy stands out as a beautiful, historical, and fascinating institution. We took the guided tour and were forturnate to observe noon presentation during Plebe Summer. As I looked at the faces of the plebes, I thought how each one must be an exceptional young person who is also surviving Plebe Summer. Our tour guide was... More

The United States Naval Academy is an exclusive higher education school for the future officers of our Navy and Marines. Many people apply each year, but few are accepted as the educational and physical requirements are strict. When visiting Annapolis, you can take a tour of the facilities and learn what life is like for the students. The campus is... More

The tour is a must! Make sure you take the earliest walking tour of the Naval Academy (about 9:30 a.m.), as it gets hot by 10:30 and you are outdoors much of the time.

As we dropped off our son, we decided to visit and were so glad we had the chance. It is a beautiful campus and has such history. We highly recommend going by the Naval Museum. Went by the gift shop and picked up an art print that we're going to hang in the study.

I have no idea why we never took this tour on earlier visits, but do not miss it. Try to arrive around 10:30 and sign up for the 11 am tour. Then you get to see the lunch muster call and formation. It was quite impressive on the day we were there. Our guide Jim was full of interesting facts... More
