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!

This is a cute little nautical exhibit with an oyster tank in the middle of the room. Interesting to walk around and read exhibits. This would take 1/2 hour or less to walk through. OR it would be a nice wedding venue. Although we didn't have the wedding here, it looked like a neat place to have it. They explained... More

A very small museum with friendly staff. The best thing for kids is a dissected skip jack that kids can crawl all over, "steer" and explore. But a visit won't take longer than an hour. The views are great, and you get a good sense of the different types of oyster boats.

Annapolis is all about its maritime history - water and boats; they are the core of early Annapolis. This is a nice, little museum to take a stroll through.

This converted oyster house maintains the tradition of the Annapolis waterfront. The museum has hands on exhibits that is great for kids and if in town on Thursday nights, the museum has presentations on maritime subjects for adults (drop ins welcome)

Eastport has changed from it's original working waterfront roots. This museum highlights what Eastport was like when oysters and watermen were thriving.

I found the Museum's oyster display incredibly informative. I could have stayed there for hours reading about this mighty bivalve, but sadly the group I was with didn't see the draw. Their huge aquarium is fascinating. I was disappointed that the store was closed (we were there in the afternoon) and a classroom full of fourth graders were allowed to... More

The day I went to the museum it was freezing cold. It's right on the water so it was a biting cold chill. The historical factors were awesome!!!!! Definitely good for children, family's, and couples. We also got to go crabbing. Didn't catch anything but was fun

Plan on spending a good amount of time to learn what you thought you knew. Very well displayed and requires a return trip.
