If you are in the Annapolis area and have a chance to visit here... DO IT!!! The history of what the place means to America and the important people that have walked its grounds is awe inspiring. It's a great facility!!

Given a tour by Eagle Scout Cadets. Lots of interesting history here. From calculating the speed of light to monuments of naval heroes and adventures. Largest dormitories in US. Fascinating traditions that are observed and honored. Beautiful architecture.

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.
