I chose to have my wedding at this location and it was an excellent decision. The staff, especially Cindy were fantastic to work with and really made us feel supported. Cindy helped me find my caterer, reverend and the tent company for my wedding. She was there every step of the way and she was very knowledgeable about the AMM... More

The model boats housed in this museum are made to the exact specifications of the boats that were built sea worthy. This goes right down to the detail inside of the boats!

First trip to this area so like to check out the local museums--this former oyster packing house is an amazing tribute to the city's great history. Caitlin S. gave us the tour and answered our questions-very knowledgable, friendly, and we enjoyed this place because we could picture exactly what she was explaining to us as the artifacts were the real...

Great place to visit. Attended a concert there as well as took the tour. So many things they do with youngsters. Quite educational. Well trained staff; very interested in helping you get the most from your visit. A must do when in Annapolis.

In an old Oyster house, this museum tells the history o oystering on the Chesapeake Bay. The docents are delightful as are the displays which include actual old oystering boats outside. The site is beautifujl, a nice deck and pier to watch the boats sailing and motoring by. Donations accepted.

People come to Annapolis for a variety of reasons and then they don't want to leave. Ever wonder why? It's because of places to visit such as the Maritime Museum. Is it a Museum? Yes! Is it a place to take a nice lunch or dinner and sit out on the docks and enjoy the water, the nearby boats, the... More

We went here after reading the reviews and we are glad we did. It is small but my son loved it. He got to try on fishing gear and "work" on a boat. The real gem of this place is the guy who works there, Eric. He was a font of information, took a lot of time with us and... More

I hadn’t stopped by here in several years and I was recently reminded what a hidden gem this place is. Located in the Eastport section of Annapolis this is the site of the old McNasby Oyster Packing Plant. It has only been in operation as a museum since approximately 2000 but it is an integral part of the community reminding... More

Its a tiny museum but worth the trip. The gift shop has all kinds of cool things. There are historic photos in all the windows upstairs with descriptions - I liked that alot. A really cool old building also!
