Amazing! The guides are passionate about what they do there. Great quality in everything they have there. Very fair entrance fee. Amazing info and models on Liberty Ships from WWII. Building itself is a treasure. Please take the time to go!

This was a delightful surprise, and tells the history of sailing in the US. There are so many great ship displays separated into time periods, and all of tis meseum is in a magnificent old mansion, that itself is fun to visit. If you visit Savannah and are a Ship buff, don't miss this museum.

Very interesting models of ships and ships in bottles. Not your normal maritime museum. No ships and no water

3 floors of amazing model ships of all shapes & sizes. Very informative . . . beautiful inside & out. Not a place which would hold the interest of young children. Great for adults of all ages.

If you like ships or anything to do with things maritime, you will love this museum. Covers ships of all kinds, from all ages, and does it very interestingly. If you've spent time on the sea, you will enjoy this place; if you haven't, you may want to after spending a few hours here.

A wonderful place to take the kids~ it was interesting to see the different scaled models of ships. They also had a great model of the Titanic and an optional film. A reasonably priced gift shop was also available.

If you love maritime history, Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum is the place to go. Not only does it have wonderful ships and other pieces, but the museum itself has a great historical background that I would not reveal here.

Recently attended a wedding here and the outdoor greenery was so beautiful for the wedding. The way in which the bride has the wedding decorated for the reception with the lights was amazing. Did not get an opportunity to view the museum in its entirety however I did see some pictures and replicas of ships on the way to the... More

Admittance was kind of pricey considering the size of the museum, but it is well maintained and the staff was polite. The gardens look pretty, but I can't imagine spending much time out there in the summer. Definitely tough access for people in wheelchairs or using a stroller (we had a stroller). Our kids were far more entertained by it... More

if you like ship models this is a mist see. Every ship that has borne the name Savannah is here. There are also models of the Titanic and other great ships. Nice collection of ships in bottles in the basement. Lots of stairs.
