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.

This is a long tour of a fabulous institution. Be prepared to walk these great grounds and buildings. The tour goes into the massive dorm building, into the chapel, swimming pool area etc.

I have a special connection to the naval Academy insofar as my father was a graduate in 1954. I went back and toured it as a kid with him but did not remember a lot. We went on the walking tour (1 hr and 15...More
