Focus & Impact
The Annapolis Maritime Museum educates youth and adults about the Annapolis area's rich maritime heritage and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay through programs, exhibits and community events. We accomplish this mission through an engaging suite of hands-on programming and by bringing visitors to our unique location, at the mouth of Back Creek overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
The education program at the Annapolis Maritime Museum annually serves more than 3,000 students from the City of Annapolis and the surrounding region. Our goal is to help students connect to the place they live, a connection that is necessary to foster a strong environmental ethic and sense of stewardship.
The Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM) is a major community asset serving Anne Arundel County and beyond.
A volunteer board of 15 distinguished community members, together with an advisory board of 11 members, and a professional staff oversee the operations and long-range planning for this tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. We are also proud to say our thriving cohort of volunteers (almost 300 at last count) are involved in all aspects of the Museum’s functions.
