The Annapolis Maritime Museum is designed to educate curious visitors of all ages about Annapolis’s rich maritime heritage and ecology of the Chesapeake Bay, particularly the bay’s all-important oyster and its harvesters.
Situated on the waterfront, the Museum provides the perfect setting for visitors to engage in interactive experiences that highlight the oyster and its role in shaping the history and the maritime culture of Annapolis. Learn how to harvest oysters, climb aboard a locally built workboat, or wade into one of the only public beaches in Annapolis. Artifacts as well as an 850-gallon oyster tank are on display to give visitors an understanding of the historic maritime culture that has made Annapolis what it is today.
Located at 723 Second Street, in the neighborhood of Eastport, just “across the creek” from the Naval Academy and City Dock, the maritime industry has centered in Eastport for 300 years.
