Great stop, full of historical, architectural, and interesting information. Not many people know that Annapolis served as the nation's capital for a time so stop by and learn a thing or two about this marvelous spot!!

A beautiful building which has been looked after and exudes history. A must visit if in the area. Plenty of free or cheap parking in the local streets. Allow 30mins to look around the inside and the glorious gardens.

Such a beautiful building! As old as America and a truly breath-taking place to see and as beautiful as a morning sunrise. Also, how cool to walk on the same ground our Founding Fathers once walked.
