We spent several hours here. The exhibits are great and the staff are very knowledgeable and love their job. We learned a lot of the seafaring history of Savannah. The gift shop is wonderful!

This property has plenty of parking so you can enjoy this beautiful old house which offers rooms of ship models exclaiming the seaport business of Savannah. Adults and school age children will enjoy seeing these intricate samples and the history of Savannah.

As far as a maritime museum is concerned the highlight was the building itself and its connection to the maritime history of the community. I enjoyed the model of the N.S. SAVANNAh and the replica of the ships bridge the most.

I went on a Saturday afternoon. It's $6.50 for students and $8.50 for adults. They have 3 floors. You can have a guided tour if you arrive at the right time. I liked the Titanic the best. The different types of USS Savannah's were cool too. A bit boring except I like to see architecture.

The staff was knowledgable and friendly, but there were not as many kid-friendly exhibits as we expected here. The ship models and history information were interesting, but more appropriate for teenagers and adults than young children.

So much to see in a small place. The displays are wonderful as is the art. Even the wood work in the building is fascinating. The garden is lovely too. Take a stroll outside.
