  • Set in an old oyster packing plant, a nice little local museum (free entrance). Also see the weekday free concerts and the great tours to the Thomas Point lighthouse

  • I have to take a moment to thank the awesome team at the Annapolis Maritime Museum for being such all stars both during the wedding planning process on our big day. My husband and I fell in love with the museum at our first visit with Cindy. It's just a special, super neat space. We loved the more industrial feel and it was definitely the "Annapolis", non-hotel, waterfront location that we were looking for. It was the first venue we looked at the one we compared all other site visits to. Even though the space is relatively compact space, it definitely works for a big event. We had 150 guests plus a band and sit down dinner and were able to make the number work comfortably by breaking down a few tables after dinner to give us some breather room for dancing. The newly tented deck is gorgeous. And despite the fact that it ended up snowing on our wedding day in April(!!!), we were able to bring in space heaters at the last minute and it made the space completely usable all night even with temperatures in the 30s (note: that took three industrial space heaters, rented through Absolute Party Rental who were also great!). I will admit that I was a higher maintenance bride. I think I made at least 10 visits to the museum pre-wedding and that's being conservative. The patience, kindness and partnership extended to me by Cindy and Paige was absolutely amazing. They made me feel like our day was important in the midst of the hundreds of other events and activities going on at the museum. They were such a pleasure to work with and our trust in them was well deserved. When it was all said and done, our wedding day was perfect and flawless and I couldn't thank these ladies enough for that. I would highly recommend the Annapolis Maritime Museum as a fantastic wedding venue and look forward to going to many other events there in the years to come!
  • Great museum that used to be an oyster packing facilty years ago. There are three vintage wooden oyster & crab harvesting boats outside and one inside. Plenty of history & photos here about the Chesapeake Bay oyster harvesting industry that peaked long ago & then declined.
  • This museum was very cute, nice small museum to visit. It seemed to be more about oyster harvesting/canning on the bay than it did about boats in general.
  • Great venue for events... an Eastport treasure
  • Great place for public water access - two piers out into back creek for fishing, crabbing, bird watching, photography, etc. You can see the Bay Bridge and Chesapeake Bay from here. Inside you will find fun history from the waterman days of Eastport. It is also a great place to host an event. There are 3 historic boats on the premises. Don't forget to check out Wild Country Seafood closeby.
