  • This is a great place to spend an hour exploring the fine exhibits about the crabbing and oyster harvesting on the Chesapeake. It's free to enter, though donations are appreciated. The folks there are...  more »
  • We attended the wedding of 2 Navel Academy grads. Dinner was great. The venue was perfect. Not to formal and not too casual.  more »
  • We came here to fish and crab, but were pleasantly surprised by the museum. Staff was friendly and what few exhibits there were were very interesting. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit the museum...  more »

  • 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!
  • Nice, small venue. Perfect for a small class field trip. Beautiful scenery right by the water.
  • They have a great display of Annapolis' maritime, oyster history. I take my students for their fieldtrips 2 times per year. Wonderful program with dedicated staff and vlounteers.
  • Nice events, street limited parking. Kayaking launch
  • The exhibit on oyster packing in early Annapolis was interesting.

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.
