Visitors Center Receptionist


The West Street Visitors Center is open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., except on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Handicapped-accessible and conveniently located adjacent to Gott's Court parking garage in the city’s Historic District, the center is within easy walking distance from every point of interest in downtown Annapolis. The center’s location is a great starting point, while our helpful volunteers are a great resource for things to do, events happening in the area, suggestions, and much more. 


COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We have been working around the clock to make sure the safety of our cherished volunteers and visitors are the top priority. Information Specialist stations have been relocated to the center's conference room to allow for more distance and to promote one-way visitor traffic flow. Additionally, Information Specialists are provided with a COVID-19 Daily Self Checklist to review before coming in the Visitors Center and will have their temperatures taken at the start of each shift with a contact-less Infrared thermometer.  
 

Visitors Center Entrance with Sign

  • Plexiglass partitions at Information Specialist stations
  • Six-foot floor markers to encourage social distancing
