About Us

The ships of the Baltimore Maritime Museum tell an exciting story of American seagoing services from 1930 – 1986. Each ship is a veteran – witness to the dangers of war, and the challenges and responsibilities of peace. Each has served its country in its own way, close to home or in distant waters, from the Sea of Japan, to the Caribbean, to the Mediterranean. The US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, the US Submarine Torsk, the Lightship #116 “Chesapeake” (at right) are National Historic Landmarks. The Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse is the oldest surviving lighthouse of its kind. Today they continue to serve as an exciting Living Classrooms facility and as a memorial to those who served.
