This is a very unique museum, and it has not been open very long (less than 2 years). It is getting better and bigger every few months. Very interesting place to visit.

I went to the Seabee Museum because my father was a Seabee in WWII, and he was actually stationed at Port Hueneme. So the visit began as a kind of tribute to my dad, but it quickly became a very enjoyable learning experience. Who knew? The Seabees were--and are--amazing! The museum, itself, is impressive. It's quite new and well laid-out.... More

The U. S. Navy Construction Battalion (SeaBees) Museum that has been at Pt. Hueneme for years has moved into a great new location. From the old, real Quonset huts, to a modern building that actually looks like it was built from Quonset huts! Great place to visit if you are in the Oxnard area.

WW2 relics and more recent. See what SeaBee's do and have done. A lot of money was put in this place for your information and pleasure. Just Go!

I overestimated how long it would take me to get to an appointment in Port Hueneme, so as a consequence had time to kill. So I dropped in here. Great little museum! I learned a lot about these unsung heroes of the U.S. Navy.

The museum was well worth the trip to the area. Recommend everyone visit to learn the history of a great part of the Navy.

This is nice museum if you a history buff. My son, who is interested in joining the Navy, found the exhibits fascinating.

This is a nice place to visit and learn more about the Seabee tradition! I am especially interested because of our family's military ties, but this is an informative and educational place to visit.

We are staying on base in the RV park for the 4th of July & decided to walk over to the museum after many stays on this facility. The new museum building is fairly new and it provides a comprehensive and interesting education on the history of the Navy Seabees. The volunteers are all extremely helpful and well informed. We...

This is a tiny museum in Port Hueneme featuring the history and accomplishments of the Naval Construction Co known as the Seabees and the Civil Engineer Corps of the US Navy. There are a lot of artifacts on display including the Humvee and artillery that were used during that time. Don't forget to grab some souvenirs in the gift shop... More
