  • Went here for an outdoor Savannah Law School graduation. They have a very nice covered pavilion area, the outdoor landscaping is gorgeous. I didn't get to view the inside but I imagine that is really nice too. Located in the downtown area so there's plenty to do within walking distance.
  • Took my kids over Spring Break this year. I wasn't expecting two rambunctious boys to really enjoy the humdrum of a museum, but I was pleasantly surprised. The museum has a wonderful collection of ships and artifacts to pour over. My boys really enjoyed the "titanic" room with the dvd commentary to match, and they were even interested in the other exhibits. Afterwards, we all took a walk around the beautiful gardens, which i imagine, will be even more spectacular within the coming weeks. A perfect place for a family photo! Really enjoyed. Definitely recommended.
  • Lots of cool replicas. The cat statue and brothels is an interesting story.
  • More than meets the eye. This is honestly one of my favorite museums in a city of so many. It is very well put together and has a wonderfully interesting history. It's not only a museum of ships, but also stories.
  • Went to AURA fest here... Beautiful venue
