“exhibiting ship models, paintings & maritime antiques”
Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, founded in 1966, exhibits ship models, paintings and maritime antiques, principally from the great era of Atlantic trade and travel between England and America during the 18th and 19th centuries. Ships of the Sea Museum features nine galleries of ship models, maritime paintings and artifacts. The vast majority of ship models were commisioned 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 commisioned models are conveniently built to the same scale: 3/8" = 1'. The Museum's Collection is housed in the elegant home built for William Scarbrough, one of the principal owners of the Steamship Savannah and president of the Savannah Steamship Company. Through careful planning and sensitive plant selection the Museum Garden has become a delightful oasis; a place to sit and meditate as well as an excellent tool for the experienced horticulturist and weekend gardener.
