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.
