About Annapolis Maritime Museum

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park is a waterfront museum at the mouth of Back Creek overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The museum is housed in what was historically the last oyster-packing plant in Annapolis. The museum engages visitors in an interactive experience that highlights the oyster and its role in shaping both the history and maritime culture of Annapolis. Our displays include an 850-gallon aquarium, a traditional deadrise workboat, and the history of the McNasby seafood packing company. The Museum operates from a waterside campus on the shores of Back Creek, with unequaled views of the Chesapeake Bay. The historic McNasby building is the ideal setting for meaningful waterfront education experiences, maritime seminars, concerts, and other programs and events.

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park offers education programs for school-aged children and adults as well as exhibits and special event, an annual winter lecture series, art exhibits. The museum space is available for private rentals. For more information about volunteer opportunities and upcoming events, please visit www.amaritime.org.
