    Dream Wedding Venue

    AMM was so amazing throughout the process. We decided to move forward with having our wedding during COVID regardless of if it was going to be a small socially distanced sit down dinner or a larger cocktail hour. AMM was so flexible in allowing us to make the reception of our dreams, There was so much room for people to mill around and the VIEW! Our guests were absolutely floored by the view and certainly took advantage of the "golden hour" to get all the photos they could. There truly are no other venues quite like AMM out there and I am so thankful of the museum and the team who were there to help and allowed us the flexibility to use the whole place. Thank you AMM for making all our wedding dreams come true, despite being in the middle of a global pandemic!

    Couldn’t have asked for better

    The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, unique, and gives a feeling of a private hideaway, while still located super conveniently. Paige is awesome to work with. She is organized, helpful, quick to respond, and very professional. If there were more stars, I’d give them. Two thumbs up!

    Dog and sailboat friendly

    My husband and I got married at AMM on September 25, 2020. Paige was super helpful as we navigated our options with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The newly renovated museum was the perfect backdrop for our big day - we were able to incorporate our sailboat as well! AMM is also pet friendly, so our dog, Opal, and my family dog, Lucy, were also able to make an appearance during the ceremony, which meant to much to us. Truly worth it!

    Wonderful! They were great to work with!

    AMM was just the perfect venue for us! We were had to postpone our wedding and then cancel and find a new venue within two weeks of our wedding date. AMM stepped right up and helped us quickly and efficiently through the process. They were responsive, kind, informative, genuine and all around great venue! Paige and Caitlin were a joy to work with and our only compliant is we wish we chose AMM from the start of our wedding journey but we are so thankful that we ended up there.

    One Last Change!


    We had originally planned to marry in Annapolis on May 1st, but COVID19 restrictions for indoor venues and 10 person limits put the brakes on for everything. Four rounds of letters and three date changes later, we finally celebrated our wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM) on August 22nd. We found AMM by chance on August 1st when we were in the middle of another venue change. Paige was incredible right from the first email. Thanks to her and her help, we were able to plan our 4th and final wedding venue change and get everything settled within three weeks. We were grateful that everything fell into place with current vendors and new vendors. The venue itself is beautiful with its position on the water and its maritime history gracing each wall. Our guests loved being able to relax on the deck beneath the tent, enjoy the beach area, and explore the exhibits in the back room. We definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a special waterfront Annapolis venue!

    Perfect Fall Wedding Venue

    Paige and the Museum were so flexible working with us to make our schedule for the day work. They were super responsive, and honestly, we couldn't have gotten a better value for our money. We loved our wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, and our guests kept telling us how fun they thought the venue was. We'd do it all over again!

    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!

    Unique gorgeous setting for such an unforgettable day!

    The entire AMM staff especially Paige were amazing from start to finish! We were married on September 21st and she was kind enough to check in on the 24th to ensure we had a wonderful time! The setting couldn’t be more unique and amazing for pictures and the venue was perfect for our 90 person wedding! There is so much to experience at the venue you can do very little or can dress it up to be all your own!

    The Perfect Venue

    Choosing the Annapolis Maritime Museum was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. The venue was absolutely perfect in every way. Paige was absolutely wonderful, very responsive to messages & worked with us to make everything easy & stress-free. Everyone raved about how special and different the site was for a wedding & it offered everything: indoor space, outdoor covered space & on the water, DOG FRIENDLY, all on a budget (which is all donated towards education at the museum, BTW - HUGE PERK). We lucked out & had the most absolute perfect weather. *Pictures by Jackalope Photography - go check her out, shes amazing

    Gorgeous and Unique Waterfront Venue

    I can't recommend this venue enough! Everything was perfect - from the ceremony on the tented deck, to the cocktail hour in the side yard/museum, to the dinner and dancing in the bayroom. We had plenty of room for our 120 guests, and they all raved about how unique and beautiful the venue was. It's not your typical venue, it's better! AMM also provided the perfect backdrop for all of our photos. We did portraits on a sailboat docked at the museum and they turned out perfect, and the dock photos were gorgeous. Me and my bridal party arrived to the ceremony by boat and used the dock as the "aisle", and it was so much fun! The staff at AMM are amazing and so easy to work with. You won't regret booking AMM for your wedding!

    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.

    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!

    Amazing Experience for An Annapolis Wedding

    From the start, my husband and I knew that the Annapolis Maritime Museum was our dream location for our wedding. We loved the waterfront, deck, small yard area, gallery for the reception, and all of the other amenities. We wanted a venue that showed off the beauty of Annapolis and the culture surrounding the town, and we could not have picked a better location. The venue was amazing!! On top of all of that, our experience working with the event manager, Paige, was phenomenal. Paige is responsive, helpful, and extremely efficient. We lived out of state, so we were unable to meet Paige in person, but she responded to all of our e-mail questions as promptly as possible. She eased all of our worries and concerns, and made the experience the best day of our lives. If you choose to have your wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, you will absolutely not regret your choice. It is an amazing venue.

    Beautiful & Unique Venue

    My favorite part about our wedding was the venue. The AMM was perfect for us. We wanted a unique venue that was also waterfront but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg. We did the ceremony on the deck and then dinner and dancing inside. Our guests were free to enjoy both indoor and outdoor spaces the whole night. Paige and her team were very helpful throughout the whole process. We didn't even know we were going to have a helper on wedding day but Kate was super helpful getting us all down the aisle and coordinating the vendors. We loved that the rental came with exactly what we needed (the space and chairs) and gave us the freedom to choose our other vendors without much restriction. Definitely a little bit more DIY than some "wedding factory" venues that provide all the services but we were able to make our wedding unique and exactly what we wanted!

    naturally beautiful venue that captures Annapolis

    We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with AMM. Paige is thoughtful, helpful, and INCREDIBLY responsive- she made me comfortable to ask any question that came to mind, no matter how small. The venue itself is beautiful and unique- our guests couldn't stop raving about what an awesome space it was. Having so many different sections of the museum allows you to be creative in how you would like the space to flow. Not to mention, the space is so naturally beautiful, it requires minimal decoration! We were inspired by the venue to make our wedding oyster-themed. We comfortably fit 140 guests although our caterer decided to break down two tables to make room for a bigger dance floor (since we had a band as well). Overall, we couldn't recommend this space enough!

    Perfect Venue for an Annapolis Wedding

    As soon as my husband and I walked into AMM, we knew it was exactly where we wanted to get married. We both love the water and were looking for a venue with that nautical feel. To be able to get married on the deck, even in a rain storm, and still enjoy the water views through the tent windows and sounds of the water splashing underneath was amazing. All our guests loved the venue and we were so happy with how everything looked. We used the boat in the museum for some of our decorations and it looked perfect. The string lighting in the main reception room and under the tent is also very appealing. The venue is pretty much already decorated in the best nautical theme you could ask for.

    We hired Paige as our day of coordinator and she took care of everything!! She was so responsive, organized and prepared. She reached out to my vendors to coordinate timelines with them. She helped us run through our rehearsal. She set up all of our DIY decor, held on to the marriage license and handed out tips and payments to vendors. At the end of the night, she packed up all the decor and gifts in my parents car. I highly recommend the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Paige!!

    Perfect location

    What a beautiful reception we had at the Annapolis Maritime Museum! We started with cocktail hour on the patio. During cocktail hour, the bridal party arrived by boat! Then dinner and dancing were held indoors. People still talk about the unique choice of a venue, and what a perfect day it was!
