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.

This museum is close to the Hampton Inn, where we were staying, and was a fun find. The Museum has lots of great replica ships and other maritime artifacts. The staff was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The Museum has a great family rate ($20 / 4 people, I believe), so it's a better value than some... More

This was our second visit to Savannah and we were looking for new places to visit. The Old Town Trolley staff suggested this museum. We purchased our tickets from Old Town Trolley and they were less than at the museum. This is an old house that has been turned into a museum. There are 3 floors of exhibits. Many of... More

Savannah IS history. It would not be there without the ships that made it. If you never took the time to build a model, even as a child, you may not appreciate the effort and time put into these models and the artist renderings in the paintings. Read the plaques, relive the journeys and imagine the labor of the ship... More

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.

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.
