No, actually there is no posibility to make multiple markers map on Squarespace. You need to use google maps API for that. So you may continue use embed maps or if you are on developer account:

  1. Make custom collection for comfort using/adding new locations. You may use gallery or blog collection as base. All them have Location tab while editing - use it for your markers location
  2. Group it in index collection if needed
  3. Looping each item in your custom location.list you may will markers array
  4. Use GMaps API and you markers to build mapYou may get smth like :exmpl1alt text

If you do not have the much coding knowledge, you can use the ready extensions. Store locators may be designed for stores, but this way you can also use them.

Have a look at this article https://nearplace.com/blog/best-wordpress-store-locator-plugin-free-paid/

You can find there some of best plugins for WordPress, but don't worry, most of them also support Squarespace.

For your purposes, I would recommend you to try out Google Maps widget by Elfsight: https://elfsight.com/google-maps-widget/.

You can create as many markers as you want for your map, change the style of every icon and add one of the three animation types. At the same setup page, you can add description, picture and basic info (address, site, phone number, email and working hours) for each location.

In the picture below you can see the example with Silver color scheme (I think this color will look especially good on your site).
