As a Navy Veteran I can't say enough about the Academy. A Must see when visiting Annapolis. Try to make a game.

We did a tour of the campus and were impressed that the public tours, visitors center, and museum were staffed by dedicated volunteers. The campus is beautiful and worth walking around, and we enjoyed getting to learn about what midshipmen experience during their time at the academy along the tour, which we wouldn't have gotten otherwise. The visitor's center doesn't have much in the way of exhibits, but it's worth going to the Naval Museum (in a separate building on a different part of campus.) You could easily spend a lot of time there learning about the Navy's history and technological advances.

We had a great tour guide for the 1 1/2 hour tour of the Academy. Lovely buildings, but we missed out on the chapel because today was a federal holiday and the people who open that building were not working today. Enjoyed the superb museum displays and talking with museum volunteer who was, himself, a Naval Academy graduate. We paid for the tour, but you can also just go it alone without paying. We thought it was worth the cost to pay for the tour. (Could have spent at least another hour, but we didn't have time to stay any longer.)

Really nice place to see the grand structures , visit the nice church or a walk by the sea. A perfect place to hang out / walk in the evening.
