Library, Archive and Special Collections

The Annapolis Maritime Museum Library holds 2,500 books, periodicals, magazines, and other library materials on local maritime history and culture. The purpose of the Library is to provide a research center for students, writers, scientists, historians, and others pursuing various lines of local maritime investigation. In addition, it is to create a repository of reference materials to be used by Museum staff in connection with the identification, appraisal, conservation, maintenance, and display of the Museum’s collections, exhibits, and programs. 

The Annapolis Maritime Museum’s archival collections are available in our online research portal. The Annapolis Maritime Heritage Research Portal provides access to photos and archival documents from the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park’s permanent collection. The collection reflects the rich maritime heritage of the Annapolis area and the neighborhood of Eastport.
