The U.S. Naval Academy Museum shines a light on the men and women who built the United States Navy, as well as the many fleets who've followed in their footsteps. It tells the stories of life on the sea, points to pieces of history from the Navy, and enlists audio and video elements to bring the museum to life.
More than 100,000 visitors flock to the U.S. Naval Academy each year to learn what life was like for the Navy's earliest members and those who came after them. Start at the "First Deck" exhibit, which traces the history of the Navy during the American Revolution and follows it to present-day with a slew of artifacts, from model ships to pieces of actual seacrafts. Then the "Second Deck" showcases the Rogers Ship Model Collection, which is the biggest collection of model ships of its kind in North America. This exhibit also hosts the Beverly R. Robinson Collection of screen prints that depict famous ships and navy scenes.
