Beautiful and impressive! Toured the grounds and met midshipmen during my time there. The history is impressive and architecture is beautiful. Well worth your time while in Annapolis.

There are tours, but one can roam freely about the campus. Must sees are the chapel, John Paul Jones's crypt, the museum in Preeble Hall and Bascom Hall.
