The price is reasonable for this museum in a house. Most of the museum consists of very detailed miniature ships. The staff were friendly, and the museum is clean and roomy. I'd recommend.

Better than we expected with,literally,room size models of the Savannah ships from the 1700's till today! Just exceptionally done by various craftsmen. We also loved the Titanic and the really nice staff. House and Gardens were both really beautiful on a Spring day!

Plenty to peak your interest about ships and sailor life. Nifty little ships in bottles. Replica of the Titanic. Scrimshaw. Boat models and mastheads. Something for everyone.

We went for two reasons, one to see another William Jay house and second for the Maritime Museum. I must admit the models of the ships were amazing. They are works of art.

Savannah's existence depended heavily on its access to the sea. This museum perfectly depicts the city's long maritime history and several of the firsts that were spawned in Savannah. After a visit to the History Museum, stop by here to get a more in-depth picture...More

If you're interested in the ship models and paintings, this is not bad. However, this is the historic Scarborough House, and that fact and its history is not advertised nor focused on. We went for the house, not the ships, and although a couple of...More
