Disappointed that the chapel and crypt were closed to visitors. One of the reasons we wanted to visit the Naval Academy was to explore both. Walking around the Academy was beautiful and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather.

Don't have the exact address, but it is very easy to find. Also if you have a military ID, the entrance process is much simpler for your entire party.
