    The perfect reception venue

    My husband and I used the Maritime museum for our wedding reception following our ceremony and we couldn't have been prouder to host our event there. The space was perfect for our size (145 guests) and honestly could have probably fit more. We rented couches for the deck space and large farm house tables for the bay room. The food was buffet style in the exhibit room which we didn't expect any guests to hang out in besides getting food but it turned out to be a great hang out spot for many guests and made the space much larger than we originally expected. All in all I fantastic spot to host a reception. Our send off was via water taxi on the dock and we recommend having guests enter venue via the entrance by the beach, and not utilize the main entrance. Paige, our event coordinator was fantastic to work with, we are so thankful to have hosted the reception there.

    Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park's reply:

    Hi Stacy and Chris - thank you so much for this fantastic review. I loved how you incorporated the lounge furniture on the deck, and all of your linen and decor choices were amazing! I'm so glad you chose AMM!
    All the best,
    Paige

    Excellent!

    You can’t beat this venue and it’s view of the water! Paige is very professional and always willing to help however she can. Not to mention, the money that you spend here is used to help further educational programs about the Chesapeake Bay. Caitlyn was there the evening of our wedding and was very helpful during our event and answered any questions that we had as things came up. I couldn’t recommend this venue more and look forward to visiting as a married couple in the future!

    The Annapolis Maritime Museum is an absolute treasure of a venue! You will not find a space with more character or charm when it comes creating your dream Chesapeake Bay/Annapolis-inspired wedding. Paige and all of the museum staff are so nice, welcoming and knowledgeable. They are true professionals and work to ensure every aspect of your event is perfect. When it comes to choosing a waterfront venue in or around Annapolis, it doesn’t get any better than AMM.

    The Annapolis Maritime Museum is a gem of a venue! The location can't be beat in the heart of downtown Annapolis. The venue overlooks the water, had a great tented dock, a beautiful interior space, and a wonderful museum exhibit perfect for photos. Onsite there is also a bridal cottage for you to get ready in. The venue is so charming and you will have so many great photos opportunities there. The staff there is also amazing!! I can't wait to work there again soon!
