The ship models are amazing! The museum building itself is beautiful and should not be missed. It is not a large museum so it does not take a lot of time, but it is worth it.

I was fortunate to visit the Savannah Maritime Museum whilst working in the United States this summer.

The models on display were magnificent and very informative.

I was delighted to see an oil painting of a British Clipper Ship named'The Bidston Hill' hanging upon the wall. This ship was built at Birkenhead by John Laird and Sons and is named after the hill at the estuary to the river Mersey near to Birkenhead and opposite Liverpool.

My great grandfather was a sea captain in a similar ship, our family all originating in Liverpool. I have in my possession his sea chest with a picture of the ship painted on the inside of the lid.
