Educating Our Community

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park provides field trips and other educational opportunities for preschoolers through adults, as well as a winter lecture series, interactive exhibits, and more. In order to cultivate lifelong environmental literacy, education efforts must begin at an early age and provide a continuum of experiences that cultivate future environmental stewards. Our education programs take place at both our Park Campus and our Museum Campus, as well as off-site.

"Dear Maritime Museum, Thank you for all the things that you did for us. I liked that we touched the fish. I like touching the eel! Thank you for letting us dress up as fishermen. It was fun! I like when we got on the boat and got the shells and put it on the bucket. Thank you for all you have done. Love, Tania!"

"My daughter has been in a lot of different camps over the years. She had a wonderful time and was excited every day for activities AMM had planned. She was disappointed when the week was over and is very excited for next year's camp. I would highly recommend AMM camp. Thank you to the wonderful staff at AMM. – "

"Thank you so much! It was a lot of fun. I love the boat ride and how we got to put the oysters in a safe area. I learned a lot, like the effect that fisherman have on our community. I also love how we used different tools to show how we catch oysters. Thank you so much for taking the time to teach us, it was lots of fun!"
