Located along the shoreline of Annapolis Maryland, the Annapolis Maritime Museum is a unique and charming nautical venue for all sorts of events, including weddings, corporate gatherings, and parties. With a history dating back to the 1990s, the museum has become a beloved institution in the local community, and its waterfront location provides a stunning backdrop for any event.

Originally founded as the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park in 1994, the institution has undergone several transformations over the years. Today, it is a thriving cultural center dedicated to preserving the rich maritime history of Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay region. The museum is home to a variety of exhibits, including interactive displays, artifacts, and educational programming that help visitors understand the important role of the maritime industry in the area’s past, present, and future.

For those seeking a unique and picturesque setting for their wedding, the Annapolis Maritime Museum is an excellent choice. The venue boasts stunning waterfront views, with a gorgeous deck overlooking the water that is perfect for a sunset ceremony. There are also plenty of options for reception spaces, including the spacious McNasby Oyster Company Building, which can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Beyond weddings, the museum is also a great spot for corporate events and parties of all kinds. The McNasby building is a versatile space that can be configured in a variety of ways to suit your needs, while the adjacent park provides ample space for outdoor activities and team-building exercises.

One thing to keep in mind, however, is that while the museum would be an ideal location for portraits, availability is limited due to the high demand for wedding and event bookings, and permission to use the space may be impossible to obtain. So if you’re looking to take advantage of the museum’s stunning waterfront setting for your engagement or family photos, it’s best to plan ahead and attempt to book the space well in advance — and have a backup plan in case it doesn’t work out.
