Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park


The Annapolis region is forever linked with the Chesapeake Bay, the oyster industry, and a proud maritime history. The historic McNasby Oyster Company was the last oyster packing plant in Annapolis and serves as the home of the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The maritime heritage exhibits, environmental education programs, and engaging community events held at the Museum Campus have established the Museum as a beloved community anchor.


With a direct view of the Chesapeake Bay, the campus includes the exhibit room, three transient piers, an adjacent beachside park with wooden boat exhibits and kayak launch point, a research library and a rotating, maritime-themed art gallery.


The Museum (Museum Campus) is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday (year-round excluding major holidays). It is located in the picturesque neighborhood of Eastport at 723 Second St, Annapolis, MD, 21403. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for children (3-12), military, and seniors (65+), and free for members and children under 3; donations are appreciated. 


Located across Back Creek from AMM’s Museum Campus is the museum’s newest addition: the Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park (Park Campus). This renovated, 12-acre park accommodates the AMM’s ever-expanding education programs, helping to further develop the curriculum to include natural sciences through hands-on activities at the campus’ urban ecology park. The enhanced educational program will place the Museum in a stronger position to fulfill its mission of inspiring a love of the Chesapeake Bay for generations to come. An old waterworks building on site has been restored and converted to classrooms for hosting school programs and summer camps, while future plans include event space and a replicated maritime village. With the addition of the Park Campus, AMM expects to significantly add to, and expand, its existing programs to cater to up to 15,000 students annually. The Park is located at 7300 Edgewood Road Annapolis, MD 21403.
