    This museum is located on the old Naval shipyard in Vallejo, CA. It has all sorts of WW II and older ship history. It's where the subs and Naval ships were actually built. The Navy abandoned the area ...  more »

    So many things to see in this museum and they were mainly specific to Mare Island Naval Shipyard. Great place to visit and worth the $5 charge!  more »

    Nice museum. There are lots of things in the museum. It may not be good for small kids as most of the item displayed require reading. Expect to spend a lot of time here if you look at everything. There is a real periscope you can look through.

    Nice place for photography. But access is restricted. Helps if you know someone who lives on Mare island.

    They have a lot of history about Mare Island and Vallejo. Check the periscope from the sub Vallejo they have it set up for a 360 degree view. The art work on posters will take you back in time.

    We frequently visit Mare Island. We love the history and all its beauty. We have enjoyed the Chapel at Christmas and the museum several times. My husband lived on Mare Island for the first five years of his life on Quarters 131 Walnut Avenue. We were wondering why this house still remains ? My husbands Grandfather, William Wiley lived there from 1931 to his retirement in 1948 after 47 years of employment and in charge of dry dock operations for the last 17 years of service.
