The friends of the Annapolis Maritime Museum is a group of young professionals dedicated to celebrating the maritime heritage of Annapolis and the neighboring Chesapeake Bay. In the true maritime sprit, the group combines service to the community with fun, sponsoring a variety of educational and social activities for its members.
friends hosts a variety of different social events throughout the year, including a winter oyster roast — this year on January 31 (read more) — and spring BBQ. We will be hosting a monthly happy hours at the Boatyard Bar and Grill, Fourth Street at Severn Avenue, in Annapolis.
friends supports the service mission of the Annapolis Maritime Museum through community clean-ups, volunteering to help with educational activities, and supporting all AMM events.
The Annapolis Maritime Museum strives to build pride in the region’s community, environment, residents and visitors by making its maritime heritage come alive for young and old. The Museum is currently renovating its home at McNasby’s, the last remaining oyster packing plant in the area. The Museum’s Bay Experience Center will be a place where exhibits emphasize involvement, excitement, inspiration, and intellectual reward for the entire community.
