  • Well worth a visit. We will return in the summer months to enjoy all of the displays. We were most impressed by the displays and the recent history. WOW!  more »
  • This museum does show some history but its a very small one room museum. Located a few miles from the busy area of Annapolis  more »
  • This is a hidden GEM worth going to. You can spend about 1-2 hours here learning the ins and outs of the oyster industry and its impact on Crabtown by the Bay. Its really neat. I think it costs a few ...  more »

  • My husband and I had a courthouse wedding earlier this year but still wanted to celebrate with our family and friends at some point. We went to a rehearsal dinner at the Museum a couple of years ago and I fell in love with it. So, when we decided we wanted to have the celebration in Annapolis (my husband's hometown) I only looked at one venue. The Museum is just so unique, low-key, and genuinely Annapolis. I also loved giving our venue money to a Museum and good cause. Once we met Paige to tour the venue and knew our date was available, we were set. Paige was very responsive to our request to set up a meeting and flexible with our limited availability to meet (we do not live in the area). Since we were already married we did not have a ceremony at the Museum, just a December reception for 126 guests starting at 6pm. When you tour the space, it seems like the capacity of 150 would be tight, but we ended up having plenty of room. It was also daylight when we toured the space, so were bummed that it would be dark by the time our guests arrived and they wouldn't really get the water views, but the venue looked GORGEOUS at night. We went with all white tables, chairs, tablecloths, plateware, etc and gold accents (framed pictures, table numbers, vases, votives, etc) and white and green bouquets and it looked amazing. We had two heaters outside on the tented deck and guests loved being out there for the raw bar, drinks, apps, dessert, etc. I loved that we didn't have to worry about weather - it was nice that it didn't rain/snow for outdoor pictures prior but it would not have put a damper on the main event at all! I could go on and on about how perfect the venue was. So many guests asked us how we found it. The only downsides (which I'm not going to dock any points for since we knew all of this going in) were that the party has to end by 10pm and that buses can't get all the way down to the venue. Could not recommend AMM more!!!
  • Great educational museum connecting the past Chesapeake Bay culture with our modern day needs to maintain the health and function of the bay ecosystem.
  • A gem of a museum! Inside the museum there are exhibits showing how the oysters were harvested and then canned with tons of photos.The "exploded" boat (maybe 'sawed in half' would be a better description) with a list of the parts is very cool, it lets you see just how the oyster boat is constructed. Then there are two boats outside that are very interesting as well. One is a draketail and it just looks like it is built for speed. Can't imagine working from its deck with an oyster tong in my hands... The other outside boat is a bugeye sailboat, if memory serves. Just a beautiful craft. Plus there is a very nice shaded dock area with views of the marina and creek with the bay in the background. Great place to visit! It is free, but hit the Donation jar at the entry if you can!
  • Great little museum. Worth the trip if you're in Annapolis.
  • Beautiful venue for a wedding, well kept facilities and friendly staff. Thank you for a great time!

Where to stay in Annapolis

Annapolis's historical downtown area draws the city's tourists, so there's plenty of choice of accommodations here. Small inns and charming bed and breakfasts represent most of the options in this part of town, with a couple even offering views of Annapolis Harbor. If everything here is booked, try the collection of national-chain hotels to the west of downtown, although access to the city's attractions isn't as convenient. Try to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during a summer weekend.
