Took the guided tour of the Academy from the visitors center at Gate 1. Do not forget your photo I.D. it is mansatory. Met our guide and the tour group which consisted of just one other couple. Ths only downside of the tour is that we moved at our guides pace, and you can forget taking pictures, because whe would just keep walking, but she was quite informative, although difficult to hear. This would be a major problem if the group was large. You can tour beautiful the grounds yourself without a guide, although you need a map to know where you can go and where you can not. There is a fee for the tour, but if you want to wander around the grounds, it is free.
After the tour where we saw the crypt of John Paul Jones, we were released to a museum at Preble Hall which is very close to the Church. The museum was wonderful with the first floor devoted to the Naval history, and the second floor devoted to model ship building. Do not miss this museum, you will tregret it.
After the museum, had a slice of Pizze at the drydock(?) cafe right on campus.
