A hidden gem of sorts, i've never seen a collection of model ships like this. My boys found fascinating and really appreciated the details. It's a great campus to walk through and see the Tomb and Church. Highly recommend for those that appreciate the military.

From the moment you reach the gate of the Naval Academy. there is an awe and a sense of respect. There is a lot of history on the grounds, and the father of the US Navy, John Paul Jones, is buried in the chapel. The Naval Academy was actually his vision and he mentioned the necessity of having a place... More

Wonderful architecture. Fantastic midshipmen (students), professors and staff. I feel much better about the future as a result of getting to know these people.

Beautiful campus to walk around especially in nice whether. I like to walk around the outside along the bulkhead to look at the water. You need to show your id to get on base, but usually there isn't a long wait.

While the entire USNA is worth a visit and tour, on the grounds is the Naval Academy Museum. This museum provides a great history of the US Navy with several historical artifacts on display, and is free! The second floor of the museum contains many antique ship models displayed brilliantly. The docents of the museum are very helpful and knowledgeable... More

Take the tour, go through the museum where you begin the tour (they have a space capsule!), then walk the grounds. John Paul Jones crypt is in the lower level of the Chapel. Many historical markers are on the grounds. Perhaps you'll get lucky and catch the Garden Club. I've visited 5 times and will visit again.

Expectations met. Spent time with daughter as invited guest for possible college bid. Never thought we would learn on site and be treated as though she was our greatest asset to them. Impressed to say the least. Unfortunately, they didn't offer what she required for medical school.
