About

Our Mission

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 Center at the Museum’s new Back Creek Nature Park campus annually serves more than 7,500 students. We aim to help construct a connection between people and the environment by leading hands-on activities that foster positive outdoor experiences and help stimulate critical thinking. These experiences can help establish a foundation for future sustainable environmental decision making. AMM offers three free core programs, as well as field trips, family programs, afterschool, summer camp, and more.

Our Organization

The Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM) is a major community asset serving Anne Arundel County and beyond. A volunteer board of 16 distinguished community 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 nearly 200 volunteers is involved in all aspects of the Museum’s functions. Since the Museum does not charge admission, we rely on memberships and donations. Please visit our Membership page if you are interested in making a fully tax deductible gift to the Museum.
