Housed in a building that once nearly fell down, the Scarborough house. The story of the various restorations is in itself worth the trip. There are displayed some of the most fantastically detailed ships models, some over 10 feet in length.

Lots of history to read and see. We really enjoyed this museum. Worth the time and money. No elevator to get upstairs was the only low point

Very interesting for a "boat buff".. if you have someone in your party that is not so interested in the "sea" stuff, then the house is very historic as well.

The ship models in this museum were beautiful- some in bottles but most were larger. some of the models had open sides so you could see inside the ship to the furnished cabins. There are three floors of models and a lot of historical information about the various ships.

Lots of great boat models from the revolutionary war, civil war, ww2 and modern times . Also, lots of steps with no elevator. If you like ships, from sail to oil tankers, then this is a must see museum.

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.
