“Great place!”

We stopped by on our vacation to look around as my husband and I both love looking at maps. It’s not just maps, there are old science exhibits, pictures of birds and so much more. We purchased a couple of antique weather exhibits that were really cool. Since we were flying, they even wrapped it for us in a sturdy tube to carry back home. If you like old stuff, and not just maps, this is your place.

“Find your way here!”

I make an annual pilgrimage to Maps of Antiquity each summer. The selection of maps from around the world is amazing. The owners are passionate about their business and always helpful.

“Excellent collection of antique maps and charts”

I bought a map from Maps of Antiquity as a gift for my husband. I called the store and provided a description of what I was looking for. Perri was extremely helpful and emailed me suggestions for what fit my description. Maps of Antiquity has a very wide and comprehensive selection of impressive maps and I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. I received the map very promptly in the mail and it is gorgeous and in great condition, especially given its age. My husband was very happy. I highly recommend shopping at Maps of Antiquity as I had a very positive experience.

“Niche luxury”

Extremely friendly staff are there to help you sift through a fascinating array of well preserved maps and prints. I’ve never experienced a store like this, as it blends the feel of a historical library with a commercial store. It is hard not to be impressed when looking at 500 year old hand colored maps or beautiful 100 year old sea weed lithographs. It may sound strange, but it is impressive to those who appreciate such things and you won’t find another place like it.

“Map purchase”

I bought an antique map online from Maps of Antiquity. It arrived in perfect shape thanks to outstanding packaging. The owners were very pleasant and informative in their correspondence, and the map itself was exactly what i was looking for. I’d recommend the experience to anyone looking for an old map.

“Online store”

I was looking for an antique map of an area in Massachusetts. I am in Wyoming and was only able to search online. Maps of Antiquity has an excellent website which made it easy to browse. I called them for some additional help and they were knowledgeable and friendly. The map was shipped promptly and made it safely, in good condition to Wyoming. I would shop there again.

“Awesome business – entire experience was top-notch!”

I don’t even know how I found this website but it’s a real treasure, and gave me a fantastic idea for my husband’s birthday. The collection of maps they have is just incredible. The site is a little outdated but it adds to the charm, given what they’re selling…clearly these folks are map aficionados who know and love what they’re doing! I’m not a “cartophile” but I can imagine that those who are just drool over this site. I easily found what I was looking for (an old map of the Polynesian islands) and was able to get a great sense of what I was buying via the description and enlarged picture. I knew it would be perfect. Ordering was easy, a gal at the shop emailed back and forth with me a few times regarding shipping status, she was super responsive and pleasant. The map was shipped promptly, arrived via priority mail within a few days, packaging was perfect, everything done with great care and attention to detail. My husband loves the map (so do I, it is super cool!). 5-star experience and I’m sure I’ll shop here again.

“Great Maps”

Really interesting little map place. They have lots of maps of the US but also plenty from the rest of the world. We picked up two antique maps of Scotland. Really worth a visit. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
