About Historic Annapolis Museum

The Historic Annapolis Museum is located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the three-story structure located at 99 Main St. This site was built in the 1790s, on the site of earlier buildings that had burned to the ground.

Archaeological excavations fleshed out the structural history while the building was restored and transformed into the Historic Annapolis's HistoryQuest at the St. Clair Wright Center (now the Historic Annapolis Museum). Learn More

The current exhibit in the Historic Annapolis Museum is Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake. In this exhibit, you will meet people who were treated as property, and discover how they resisted that condition and asserted some degree of control over their lives and circumstances.

Video, historic artifacts, actual runaway advertisements dating from 1728-1864, hands-on activities, mannequins, and reproduction clothing will all help to tell the story of real people who struggled for freedom.
