A small museum. We spent probably about two hours here learning about maritime history. The ships are beautiful as is the house the museum is in.

A light WWII Cruiser, a flat top, and nuclear sub make this an excellent trip back in History. From the flight deck to the engine rooms, make this a great chance to experience what our service men and women went through in service to our country.

Possibly spoiled by the maritime museum in Barcelona, this had to-scale models of a few ships rather than life sized replicas. There wasn't much to look at, although the garden is probably awesome in warmer weather.

Nice little place to visit very interesting scale to size models they have inside. I would recommend this place to anybody above the edge of 30. I would not recommend to a family with Lillie children. Only due to the fact that they will lose interest very quickly.

They also let us roam around for hours.This Beautiful Mansion Museum, houses so much content that it took hours to get through it. Great for school trips. I... More

A visitor can wander in this mansion museum for hours as terrific ship models of every type are on display. There are three floors to investigate and improve your nautical history knowledge.

The most dramatic sailing ship models you've ever seen. They tell the history of the Port of Savannah in a completely different way. The detail is amazing. Make sure to spend some time in the classic garden,

If you like model ships, you've got to go, simple as that. Beautifully presented, with a special emphasis on local connections (like ships named Savannah). We saw the museum in the afternoon and returned that evening for a Theremin Summit!

This was our second visit to this museum. It never gets old. So much to see and learn. Take a sweater, it's chilly in there. Three floors of displays to see.

Very nice location and building loaded with authentic ship models covering many years of maritìme history. Definitely for history buffs and sailors. The building itself is quite interesting, be sure to ask the folks to explain anythìng you might not understand as they seemed very knowledgeable. Worth the visit.
