Lots of interesting information and ship models to see. Allow about 1 1/2 hour to view everything. Staff very informative and helpful.

This place has a great collection of items. My only concern is the lighting in the museum is so low and dim, it's hard to see the items and read the descriptions. If you've got great eyes, you'll enjoy this place.

Awesome museum about shipping and history with great insight to Savannah's history in the industry. Totally worth the visit and site tour fee. Garden out back is great as well.

$9.00 adults I believe. It is worth the cost!
