It is so inspiring to see the cadets and how dedicated and disciplined they are. They take their duty and training very seriously. They will be well trained to protect our country from now into the future.

The US Naval Academy is huge. You can easily spend a day there. We were both humbled and thankful to be able to view this bit of our history. The buildings, monuments and architecture are all so captivating. Add to that the story's of all who have contributed to our freedom....I'm just so grateful. I feel everyone should see this....

Sadly, we did not have enough time to visit the museum this trip, but hope to do so in the future...But it was worth it to walk the grounds and just feel so good about this academy and all the learning that takes place here. Beautiful area! You will need ID when you enter.

Buildings open to the public include some sections of Bancroft hall, alumni hall, the beautiful chapel, a restaurant, and an amazing museum. The museum provides a full history of the US... More

Fantastic naval museum. It was liking walking through the history of the US following the history of our Navy. A bonus was the floor of models of all types of naval craft. Loved it and highly recommend.
