This was my 2nd trip and it was just as good as the first. Christina was a wonderful server. She was really helpful with our table full of picky eaters.

I had been here as a child and always wanted to go back. It is located in a old home not far from the historic harbor. It tells the history of ships from the beginning till current. Alot of artifacts, a few interactive and some exceptional models. The gardens are very nice and the home is exceptional.

Both my husband and I felt lukewarm about going to this museum. But it was part of a three-museum pass we purchased, so we went. It turned out the museum was really interesting. The museum is housed in a historic home with a beautiful garden area. The first level has a gift shop and ship models on display. They aren’t... More

If you are a maritime enthusiast, this would be your cup of tea. I walked through because my husband wanted to go. Ho him.

This was at a stop along our trolley tour. It is located in the Scarborough House, which is gorgeous. It says it's three floors, but the bottom floor is just a restroom and a photo opportunity. It has a lot of neat information and artifacts. Price seems on the higher end of fair, $9 for an adult.

The exhibits were really educational, but it was hard to read some of the descriptions in the display cases due to the low lighting. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

Back in the 70's I had been in the Ships of the Sea's museum when it was still located on Historical River Street, before River Street transformed to what it is today. I went on those visits with my grandfather who was a retired Merchant Marine Captain that had worked with the Ocean Steamship Company of Savannah, and during WWII... More

Not your typical maritime museum. This one features endless intricate models of ships: old and newer. It was really fascinating to see the detailed models and I enjoyed reading about the ships history. Plus it wasn't very expensive. Don't forget to check out the gardens next door it was a cool quiet place to rest.

This is a small museum that is located near some other small museums (railroad, history); all of which are wonderful. The models were the gift of one person who made ship models as a hobby, down the the last detail, and they were spectacular. We spent our way through the small gift shop which effectively complements the museum. I'd go... More
