The amazing model ships give a view of seafaring that's enhanced by the quality of the exhibits about the history of the house and its owners. I enjoyed it tremendously.

We were there on November 2nd on the day of a marathon in Savannah. All of the doors were locked. We later heard that they had shutdown due to the marathon and were opening late. But... no one put up a sign advising of that.

Came here on a whim when we needed to kill some time on a hot day. The ships on display had an amazing level of detail and the stories behind them were fascinating!

Gardens around the house great. Being set up for a reception in the gardens while we were there. The museum is models, explanations. Generally lighting could have been better but they do let you use phones. Focus is on Savannah/Civil War in the area.
