Maps of Antiquity has a great stock of maps & prints; I ordered online and was delivered my purchase within days across the Pond; One can see from the care they've given in packaging this fragile print that there is great passion in what they do; thank you to them

I wanted to get my mom a map of Cape Cod for her new home on the Cape as a Christmas present. Since we live in Western part of the state, it was not going to be easy for me to go to Maps of Antiquity to see their selections. They made this process so easy for me, they provided... More

My wife and I stopped here in mid-November and had a great time. The staff is exceedingly helpful and they have endless maps to peruse covering centuries of time. What a treat!

My wife and I went to the store to look at maps of Nepal. There were 4 people in the store and we didn't realize all of them worked at the store. I asked one of them if she had any maps of Nepal and she produced a couple. Soon I realized that all 4 of these people were hunting... More

I had emailed the store about a couple of maps we had seen on their website, and their responses were always prompt and extremely helpful. When we arrived not only did the map we chose look even better in person, but the frame they had used was amazing quality. One of the owners spent the time to go over the... More

My husband and I rushed here after our whale watcher cruise hoping to find something nice to remember our anniversary weekend. We arrived about 30 minutes before the shop closed. I expected to have a quick browse then hurried out the door. That did not happen. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We weren’t sure what exactly we wanted,... More

This is a wonderful map store. They have maps from all over the place and everything is very organized and easy to look through. If you're looking for something specific they will help you find it and show you some specialty things that aren't out. They have a wide range of original maps and reproductions and variable price points. If... More

We have visited Maps of Antiquity several times over the years. We have purchased maps there as well as having some restorations, including cleaning and a fairly complex restoration which involved restoring a missing piece that someone had cut out of an 1855 map of our hometown. We have also had framing done there. All dealings with Danielle and Robert... More
