Visitors are welcome here- you just have to show id and have your bag scanned at the welcome center. Then you are free to take a tour or roam the grounds on your own. The campus is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend a visit here.

Always a ‘must see’ for anyone coming to Annapolis. Park outside ‘Gate 1’ And walk in. Visitors center is great, good gift shop-but just meandering around this amazing campus is fun for all ages.

Stupendous! —- history, patriotism, organ music in the Chapel. Memorable. If it works for your schedule, try to get tickets for the annual Halloween Concert in the Chapel. On the waterfront by the athletic fields is the masthead from USS Maine

Such a beautiful place to visit. Great views and such history. You might catch the Midshipmen during their drills.

A great place to visit and discover Naval history. Beautiful architecture and scenery. The Naval Academy Chapel is exquisite. Try to be at Bancroft Hall at noon for the brigade meal formation.

You must visit the academy grounds and any open buildings (have a picture ID to enter). the chapel is lovely. the Naval History Museum is well worth a long visit--and get a guide if possible to bring life to the exhibits

We were fortunate enough to attend this years graduation at the Naval Academy. President Trump gave the keynote address and the graduates were very impressive. The actual Academy campus is a few miles from the stadium where the graduation was held, but a walking tour,...More

Don't have the exact address, but it is very easy to find. Also if you have a military ID, the entrance process is much simpler for your entire party.
