Directions

The U.S. Naval Academy Museum is located in Preble Hall on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. It is 35 miles east of Washington, D.C. via U.S. Route 50 (Exit 24), and 26 miles south of Baltimore via Maryland Route 2 or Interstate 97. The area is served by three major airports, several private airfields, AmTrak, buses, and marinas. Preble Hall is located just inside the Maryland Avenue gate of the Naval Academy. Beyond the large wrought iron door, the entrance foyer is paneled in pink travertine marble. There are four exhibition galleries totaling 12,000 square feet, storage spaces for the reserve study collection totaling 3,500 square feet, offices, and a small but well-equipped exhibit construction shop taking up the remaining 5,000 square feet. In addition to the galleries, museum objects are also exhibited in the Chapel crypt, Memorial Hall, the Yard, and most of the academic buildings.

Where are we going today?

Through its collections and exhibits, the Museum contributes to the recognition of history as a basic source of knowledge in advancing the theory and practice of sea power - Ex Scientia Tridens: from knowledge, sea power. Utilizing three-dimensional and graphic materials, the Museum demonstrates the Navy's role, in war and in peace, in defending and preserving the ideals of our country and mankind. The exhibitions and related research are reminders of our naval heritage - a long record of loyalty, integrity, and service to the nation.

    See this Museum if you love tall ships, naval history, model making, the Navy, the Marines, or Annapolis. But see the museum website for the correct hours, about 9 to 4, not 7 to 3:30 as posted on Google 8/4/14. On the Academy grounds, so you must show photo ID at the gate.

    As a tourist, this is a really interesting place to visit. The guided tours are excellent and full of history from former servicepeople (although not necessarily alumni from the college).
    The tour takes a couple of hours and you'll go inside some of the buildings and hear lots of stories about what it's like to train here.
    Worth the effort to visit if you're in town - whether you're a foreigner or an American.
