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!

I was looking for a special personal gift for friends, to gift it to them at Thanksgiving. Through my research I came across Maps of Antiquity. I got in touch with them and they were so amazing. They are prompt, informed and meticulous. They took me through the steps and my husband and zeroed in on an antique map of... More

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

I found maps of Antiquity online. Their range of maps and comparative maps is astonishing. Service, shipping and correspondence was professional. I can highly recommend this to map-freaks like me but also to others with more general interests in history, geology and geography. It's a treasure!

My husband's job brings us to different countries every 2-4 years, and each country becomes part of our family's memories and journey. We were desperately looking for an antique map of El Salvador, but could not find a verifiably genuine map anywhere, although there are plenty of fakes floating around. Were delighted to find a beautiful map via Maps of... More

The staff was very friendly and welcoming--even told me as a first time visitor what was where. They asked me what I was interested in and helped me find something. I will make it a point to come back here on any future visits to Chatham, that is, if I don't return on this trip!
