The Maritime Museum is worth a visit. The models are expertly built and of high quality. The history described for each exhibit brings life to the models and tells their story. The gardens are a nice place to relax as well.

Last stop on the trolley tour. Very nice. I especially likes the top floor where various items used on ships were displayed and explained.

I took a group of teenagers on a summer school trip to Savannah. One of the items on the agenda was the Ships of the Sea Museum. It's very small so if you're expecting a large museum re-think your visit. In addition, if we did not have a guided tour of the museum it would've been not as informative. However, the museum did a small class with our kids which was a nice touch. However, if I would've been a regular patron visiting the museum with out the class I would've been disappointed. There are other things to do in Savannah that I think your money would be better spent doing.

Self-guided tour, can take your time enjoying each of the 3 rooms filled with ships and descriptions. If you are not into ships and days of yore the gardens are quiet and relaxing.
