    I thought I was already aware of the equipment and many situations that the U.S, Navy had been in over the last 75 years. I am retired Army, however after taking the tour of the Museum I realized that...  more »

    You'll learn about ship building, Navy baseball, life on board a ship, and lots of other incidental tidbits. It was our second visit but we gained even more than we did the first time. (Or forgot more...  more »

    No one goes to these places. Why do the people that review the two Navy Museums rate them so highly? No way in hell that the places in question should rate higher than two stars. I visited the Under Sea Museum previously and both suffer from a lack of a physical exhibit although the facility that dismantled the aging ships, a far more interesting place, is literally next door. Both of the Navy Museums should have entire sections if not decommissioned vessels docked at the Museum like was done in Fall River Massachusetts where 3 naval vessels are docked there and numerous smaller vessels inside. Yes one was a few dollars to enter and the other is free; but our time is also a commodity and going to the Naval Museums is a waste of it. The only saving grace is the incredibly beautiful park that lies behind the Museum. It has a series of large fountains of brass or copper with pathways of stone in a ribbon shape. There are large metal sculptures throughout. At the end, is puget sound. When we were there, we saw the USS Nimitz leaving port in regalia with a helicopter hovering overhead; I assume for a photo op. There is also a pretty nice fountain in front of the shipyard and a decent downtown. It's the things around the Museum that makes it worth while, but again the Museum itself is a let down. I will drop some photos later.

    If have to say the overall experience is probably better suited to older children and their parents, but I took my kids here and we had a lot of fun. They have a lot of different exhibits that show various hurricane aspects of the shipyard and the craft they've worked on over time up through more modern displays. My kids particularly enjoyed the tattoo exhibit that featured a tattoo projector. Well done!

    Great place to get away for a little and it is free. Staff was very knowledgeable and willing to help and answer questions.
