I took my husband because that is his thing. the rooms were dark and difficult to read the information listed by the ships. We had to use our flashlight app to read. Suggestion, bring a full charge phone. Steps to go up and down too.

Amazing creation of ships & history of each. The time & talent to recreate each ship & present their history is outstanding. Take time to slowly enjoy this museum.

WE took our time and were very impressed with the models that they have on display. A couple of them were very intense in the rigging. Amazing what some people can do. There was a sign with nearly every piece telling more about it and...More

If you have guys or sailing/ship history lovers traveling with you, you’ll want to stop in. If not, I’d opt for other historic sites. We were told by the visitor center it was great because it was in an historic home and had beautiful gardens....More

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!
