  • Provides Naval history in the area. Some items rotate out. Fun to walk through and talk with the volunteers. Very short distance from the ferry terminal.  more »
  • Really cool museum! Loved the upstairs portion. All the volunteers were super nice BUT THERE IS NO PARKING HERE!! if you drive down you'll end up on a ferry to seattle. If you have a trailer, good luck! I wish there were warnings about this before we almost boarded a ferry with our trailer. We had to park on the street but at least it was free!
  • Small and unassuming but well worth the time and cost of admission (free!). Having served on three carriers, the upper level does a great job describing the jobs and life aboard a super carrier. Also has exhibits on small craft and some sections that rotate. The lower level covers the shipyards beginnings. We had about an hour which was adequate but if you read more and listen to all of the videos you might want another half hour. The gift shop is also well appointed.
  • We live right around the corner from this place but are fairly new to the area and decided to go in while waiting for the ferry to take us to Seattle. The museum is setup very nicely and it is clean. This is definitely a place to visit.
  • We got to peek into the new exhibit, can't wait til it opens! This was a treasure trive of information about navy life. We really enjoyed visiting and will be back!
  • Very cool little museum with high quality exhibits. Went with a small gang of 3 - 6 year olds, and everyone found fun things to engage with. The kids especially enjoyed the children's room outfitted with wearable costumes and play galley, as well as the demo bunk beds. Wouldn't be worth the trip for the museum alone if I were coming from Seattle or further given the size of the place, but it's a fun and easy add on to other sightseeing activities, or a GREAT rainy day option for local families. Don't miss Harborside Fountain Park right next door.
