Learn about the unique maritime heritage of the Annapolis area and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay. The Annapolis Maritime Museum provides a myriad of learning opportunities including education programs and field trips for pre-school students through adults, a winter lecture series, exhibits and more.
"From start to finish, the 6th grade field trip was amazing. The Annapolis Maritime Museum staff and volunteers were knowledgeable and great group managers, keeping the students engaged and interested at each station. The stations themselves were well orchestrated: they had just the right amount of content, and were paced with hands on activities, investigation activities, data collection, history, science, cultural heritage and language arts. We were all prepped with standard safety procedures for the boat trip, and the students were given enough freedom on the boat to explore at their own pace after the stations completed. Best of all, we planted baby oysters on the Severn River. My daughter remarked that she felt really good doing it...that even though she is 'just one kid, when they all work together, they can make a difference in the health of the Bay.' What a great day to have extended their classroom into the outdoors!! Great program!!! Well done, Annapolis Maritime Museum!"
