A tour of the campus and/or a trip to the visitor's center (including the intro film and store) are must sees. See where navy officers in training are educated, as well as the beautiful views of the adjacent Severn River, the Chapel with John Paul...More

Well done tour and ended up timing it so we could watch the students do their marching drills before heading in for lunch.

If you are looking for a friendly welcome, go somewhere else. You would think that these guards are in charge of gold and diamonds. There has got to be a friendlier way to vet the guests interested in seeing a taxpayer funded institution.

Loved our trip to the Naval Academy. So much history and beauty in one place! The chapel is amazing as is Bancroft Hall. The museum is robust and the models on the 2nd floor are a MUST SEE!

Expansive. Old. Large. Pristine on the waterfront. Midshipmen and likely "Plebes" walked among us at times dressed in unuform. History museum outstanding! Chapel and Jones' crypt interesting. We took two days there to explore. Great time. Great family time. Quality event.

It is a fun place to visit, and the buildings are gorgeous. It you go at sunset, be aware that you have to stop what you are doing, stand at attention, and face the flag as it is lowered.

Just completed a visit to this great location and I can't say enough good things. The history and things i've learned in a brief visit were awesome. Can't wait til summer and spend another longer day here

We visited during the week between Christmas and New Year so sadly most of the Cadets were on break. Disappointing. Love seeing our young service people in uniform. We are a DOD family, so we were able to stay on the grounds in DOD housing...More

Sorry but I don't think that you can get in without being screened at Gate 1. I may be wrong, so you may want to call and ask.
