Description:
Maritime museums from around the world.

Expanded Description:
Maritime museums (sometimes referred to as nautical museums) are museums specializing in the display of objects relating to ships and travel on seas and lakes. Most museums exhibit interesting pieces of ships (such as a figurehead or cannon), ship models, and miscellaneous small items like cutlery and uniforms.


Instructions for Posting a Maritime Museums Waymark:

1. NAME: The name of the maritime museum and its location should be included in the title. Generally this should be the city/town, state and/or country -- whatever is appropriate to its location.

Example: Jacksonville Maritime Museum - Jacksonville, FL

2. COORDINATES: These should be taken from the main entrance to the museum. If this is impossible for any reason, please state this in your description.

3. PHOTOS: At least two original photographs (taken by you) -- a view showing the entire museum, or major portion thereof (this should be the default photo), and a close-up clearly showing a sign with the name of the museum. If there is no such sign, please state this and the requirement will be waived. A GPSr photo is not required.

4. DESCRIPTION: Include as much information about this particular museum as you can, especially its unique features and history. Waymarks with no description will be returned for resubmission.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. However, if the waymark is written in a language other than English, an English translation is required. The English translation does not need to be perfect, just clear enough for the Officers and other viewers to understand what the waymark is about. And, as always, please cite your sources. Thank you!
