Ships Of The Sea Maritime Museum

41 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Savannah, GA 31401, USA

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum has some fabulous exhibits on early Atlantic trade—art, antiques and scale models. While you could get lost in the history here, I find myself getting lost in their gardening. The home, a great example of Greek Revival architecture, has been cultivating their garden for ages. All the plants are native to the area and the landscaping is typical of an early Savannah’s garden. Here you can draw inspiration for your own yard or just relax and reflect. It’s a great museum with something for everyone.
