Bring your class to Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park for a day of discovery with one of our school programs. We offer hands-on, inquiry-based education programs that foster positive outdoor experiences and encourage critical thinking. Programs are designed to align with Maryland Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and support Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs). These programs can be customized and tailored to any group or can be combined for a full-day experience. Video of students at AMM
