Annapolis Maritime Museum's mission is to educate students and adults on the area's maritime heritage and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay

The Annapolis Maritime Museum continues to evolve as an important and valued institution in Annapolis and in greater Anne Arundel County. Your support allows the Museum to accommodate a steady stream of visitors, to enjoy the exhibits, the extraordinary view of the Bay, and the continuation of our cooperative programs with local school systems. In the coming year, over 3,000 elementary and middle school children will participate directly in the Museum’s education programs.

The Museum plays a unique role in teaching children and adults about the environment and our maritime heritage.

Our 6th Grade Oyster Program is a year-long environmental literacy project educating students through culture, ecology, and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster. The program uses the oyster as an avenue to explore the human interaction with the environment including policy, economics, biological and historical significance. In addition, the effects of urban development and storm water on oysters and the Chesapeake Bay is emphasized.

Annapolis Maritime Museum is providing the Annapolis, greater Anne Arundel County and beyond with innovative public service programming. Our core mission guides all of these programs: To preserve and commemorate the maritime heritage and ecology of Annapolis and the neighboring waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
