  • Very interesting, full of facts and amazing and intricately designed ship replicas, and displays. Very quiet, minimal lighting so you'll need your phone or bring a flash light. Staff was amazing also.
  • The SOTSM is a real treasure and one of my favorite venues for events, whether it's a lecture, concert or just to wander the magnificent gardens and exhibits.
  • Museum with replicas and other maritime items that were interesting amd fun to see while visiting Savannah. Also a friendly staff that was willing to add information and answer questions really added to the time spent here!
  • The staff here were really welcoming. They greeted us with something akin to a cheery, "Ahoy!", gave us plenty of information about the displays and house and let my family of four adults in at the family price ($20, but intended for two adults & two kids)! The model ships were interesting and intricate. Solid stop overall.
  • Small but interesting museum. Like a maze to get to the entry door with poor signage. Worth it if you are into this type of history.
