    Perfect location

    Beautiful location on the water. All of our guests really enjoyed it. The museum itself was also great for kids and adults who needed a break from the dance floor. Parking is offsite but super close and was not a hassle at all. There are tons of Airbnbs nearby, so many of our guests were able to walk.

    Fantastic setting for a nautical wedding!

    When my husband and I walked into the Annapolis Maritime Museum, we knew this was the place for us! It offered exactly what we were looking for and would be the perfect setting for our guests – the young and the not so young. From the gallery, the side yard, the main deck, and main event space to the wonderful view of the Bay - everyone would be sure to have a wonderful experience. And they did! We could not have had a more memorable day. What a lovely setting for a nautical wedding! We enjoyed working with Paige and her colleagues very much to plan and execute our special day. No question we asked was too simple or complex - all were answered in a professional and timely manner. Be sure to have your next event here! You won't regret it!

    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.

  • Rose Gold Events & Styling Wedding Planners

    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!
