“Histoy in your backyard”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Patriotic, historical and educational site within walking distance of a beautiful, scenic town. It can't be beat as an educational stopping point while in Maryland's capital city.

“you need to visit here”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The grounds echo with tradition. A must see is the museum (plan a a few hours) and the chapel. If you can take the tour with a graduate of the academy. They can tell you things you wont hear about just by goinf by yourself.

“American Pride!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

My family and I really enjoyed our tour. It was very educational. The campus is stunning. We got to see the mid-shipmen practice marching and drilling out front. The staff volunteers were very friendly, knowledgeable, and welcoming. The tour did have lots of walking. I recommend wearing very supportive and comfortable walking shoes/sneakers. If you are going for a specific tour time, get to the academy early. You have to go through a security check point and expect to have your bags and such searched. Remember, its a military facitliy; not Disney World.

“Navy pride !”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Lovely campus. Check out the Naval academy, buy some Navy pride shirts and you will be ready to root for Navy to Beat Army and Air force in their annual games. Take a walking tour and hear lots of stories of campus legends and traditions. See the remains of John Paul Jones under the chapel, and watch the students parade around in their uniforms. Loved it!
