The Annapolis Maritime Museum is a premiere museum in Downtown Annapolis which educates visitors about the area’s maritime heritage and ecology. The organization has two campuses which are used to entertain and educate its visitors: McNasby Oyster Company and Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park.

The McNasby Oyster Company is a historic building which has served as the museum’s base of operations for over 20 years. Located directly on Back Creek and the Severn River in Eastport, MD, the museum provides a perfect setting for visitors to engage in interactive experiences and programs and learn about the ecology and maritime history of the area. Numerous exhibits, and structures achieve this vision along with a nearby beachside park and piers.

The Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park is also located on Back Creek and encompasses 12-acres of forested trails, waterfront, event pavilion and more. This park campus caters primarily to school groups, summer camps and education programs for the benefit of inspiring younger generations to love and care for the Chesapeake Bay.
