    Best wedding venue EVER!

    We just got married at the Annapolis Maritime Museum and I can’t recommend it enough. It was a perfect setting for our dream wedding on the water. Great location, beautiful inside area, outside lawn/beach area and stunning views. It was my dream venue and I’m in love with it. We worked with Paige Skrickus as the venue manager and our day of coordinator. She is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through. Paige made the planning process easy and enjoyable. She was responsive, flexible, and always professional, and went out of her way to accommodate any and all requests. Best of all…AMM is reasonably priced for the level of quality and service. I highly recommend this venue for any type of event!!!

    Wedding & Reception

    We truly enjoyed having our daughter's (and new son-in-law) wedding at the museum. It was easy and convenient to work with the staff and the kids and adults loved having an entire museum to themselves, super cool! The water, the museum, the bride's bungalow, the docks, the relaxed atmosphere...it was all made for a great time enjoyed by all ages!

Honeywood Event + Tent Honeywood Event + Tent Wedding Rentals

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!
