Lots of interesting things to see, and even a place for young children to play. Very clean and modern. Best part is that it's free! There's a pretty little park right next to this museum as well.

Staying in the area for a Navy ship reunion and museum was nearby. Spent a few hours touring. Very interesting!!! (and it was free)

Amazing to have a FREE museum of this quality. The only drawback is parking. None around the building. Public parking is about 3 blocks away and has a limit of 2 hours. Because of this, I felt rushed to get back before the "meter maid."

Self paced, with lots to see, this museum is free to the public, by donation. The docents are decent, and the history is significant. Enjoy! The only warning: there is NO parking here, so you will be reliant on parking down on the streets by...More

This small museum is full of great displays. There is a good section about the naval shipyard, and one on PT boats, and others, but my favorite was the aircraft carrier area. There is a spooling video of flight deck activity that is hypnotic. I...More
