Ships Of The Sea Maritime Museum
Ships of the Sea Museum features nine galleries of ship models, maritime paintings and artifacts. The vast majority of ship models were commissioned by the Museum to interpret the rich story of Savannah’s maritime history. The collection of models includes, colonial vessels, ironclads, ocean-going steamers, and modern navy ships. All of the models have been strenuously researched and delicately detailed. Further, the Museum’s commissioned models are conveniently built to the same scale: 3/8″ = 1′.
