Summer Fun—Day 40: Tour the Naval Academy

There is a lot to see in Maryland’s capital, but it wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Naval Academy.

Start your tour at the Halsey Field House, where you’ll find interactive screens, including a huge wall map to explore different sites around the naval yard. Families can also learn about life as a midshipman and Naval Academy admissions and academics. From there, head to the Armel-Leftwich Visitor Center where you can watch a quick, introductory video, “A Call to Serve,” then step onto the grounds, which you can walk through on your own or as part of a guided tour. On your tour, don’t miss the U.S. Naval History Museum, which houses a truly impressive collection of naval historical items, and model ships!

For the month of August, tours run Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Sundays from 12 to 3 p.m.

The visitor center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Public tours start at the visitor center and cost $11 for adults and $9 for kids in first through 12th grade. Kids under first grade are free.

Entering the grounds is free, but anyone 18 or older must show a valid original U.S. government-issued photo ID or original passport (no photocopies).

For more information, visit the U.S. Naval Academy website.
