This enjoyable museum showcases Savannah’s long role as a port city with nine galleries of ship models, paintings, and maritime antiques. The collection is housed in Scarbrough House, an elegant Greek Revival mansion completed in 1819 for William Scarbrough, president of the Savannah Steamship Company. Exhibits include a model of Scarbrough’s steamship Savannah, launched in New York in 1818 and the first steamship to cross the Atlantic.
