“Worth a visit!”

We visited this museum because it was included with our Savannah TourPass, and it was worth the trip. The grounds outside are stunning and are certainly beautiful when the azaleas are in bloom...

“Wonderful Ship Models ”

This museum is located in an old historic mansion. It is filled with numerous hand made models of historical ships. There are also a lot of paintings of ships, as well. This is well worth a visit.

The level of detail in these model ships was truly incredible. Quite an impressive number of ships. A very unique experience.
