“Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Definately worth the fee. There were lots of miniture replicas of all kinds of ships (obviously). The building itself and the gardens were a bonus. This was one of my favorite stops downtown. We stayed about an hour.

“Great wedding venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Toured the museum and gardens as a wedding venue! SO gorgeous! Two different gardens could allow for either a small or large wedding. Absolutely breath taking and totally worth it!

“Perfect "Savannah" Wedding Venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Ever since my first trip to Savannah in March 2010, I've wanted to have a wedding in one of the squares. We recently saw a wedding taking place, and it didn't occur to me that having it in the square means all of the tourists and residents of Savannah would be able to walk around the square, cars and tour trolleys would be driving around, and it wouldn't be as intimate and secluded as I had wanted. My future mother in law found the Ships of the Sea website online and I decided to look into it as a wedding venue. We viewed the Museum and Gardens today as an option for our wedding in June of 2014 and we fell in love! Debbie has been working with me for a few weeks through email and she was the best host when it came to us touring the gardens and the museum. She was so informative about where things can/could take place, what the best plans would be, where the best photo ops would be, and so understanding about our vision and the feel we wanted on our wedding day. Whatever that feeling is when you hear ethereal singing, I got it when we saw the garden! I could not be more excited to have booked the Scarborough House Garden for the wedding and to start working with Debbie!! I would recommend Ships of the Sea to anyone looking to get married in Savannah.

“Great for history lovers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Wonderful way to pass a cloudy morning, wandering among the ship models and getting a history lesson along the way. The museum is just big enough to be interesting without wearing one out. The ship models are beatifully crafted, and large enough to allow for a great deal of detail. Stories about their associations with Savannah are clearly posted. Nice gift ship, too!

“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This museum is inside of a beautiful, old home that is amazing even without the nautical displays. The incredibly detailed model ships need plenty of time to properly appreciate. In addition to the history on the inside, the outside of the museum is worth allotting
plenty of time--the gardens are lush, fragrant and very beautiful.
