Nice self-guided tour where I learned a lot about maritime history involving Savannah. Lots of beautifully crafted recreations of ships that have been important to the region. It took about an hour to view the displays. The house and gardens are beautiful as well. Definitely worth a stop if you are at all interested in ships.

My wife is a real history buff, and we learned so much! I was more interested in the amazing models that are in the place. It has a small area downstairs for the kids to play and learn. Highly recommended, decent prices.

The gardens are stunning and the house is just beautiful. The building itself has a long and interesting history, I definitely suggest reading the wall on the second story landing about the houses history. The house has been restored and is very beautiful. I enjoyed the model ships and it seems like the type of museum that grandparents and school... More

Lots of pictures of boats and boat models. Not bad if you're into that sort of thing but the museum is a little light on historical info. The grounds are very nice and would be neat for an event. If you bring kids, they will be very uninterested.

We asked if that was enough time to go through, and they said yes. The ship models were very impressive. The house was beautiful and impressive. There... More

Museum is located in an historic home so like getting 2 for 1. Ship models are incredible as they reflect great detail and the placards provide a good recap of the vessels service.

So after a few years of living in Sav, I finally made it to this museum. I wish I hadn't waited! The artifacts and ship models are completely enthralling. I was entertained, educated and enchanted--no lie. Check it out with a friend or bring the family, your inner kid will shine.

A pleasant and interesting museum on the west side of Savannah close to the river. A pleasant outside area for activities and lots of ship models and information in the museum, one of the oldest, largest houses in Savannah.
