This museum is free and run by volunteers, many are veterans. The second floor has so many hands-on elements and videos and is very engaging for all ages. I will definitely be visiting again!

Fabulously curated with care. We enjoyed almost 2 hours perusing all of the exhibits. It truly gave me a whole new appreciation of the Navy, the shipyard, and life aboard an aircraft carrier.

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."
