Quaint and modern and free

Title sums it up, had about 40 minutes before the ferry, more modern displays, do like the architecture. Very friendly docents.

The museum is free and run by volunteers. They have the whole history of the port, interactive displays, and great photos of the past. don't miss it if you are in Bremerton, right next to the ferry and the beautiful waterpark there.

The docents were so friendly and love to share this small museum. Downstairs is the history of the shipyard; upstairs is naval history. Be sure to watch the video about the training of navy seals. Fascinating.

Well organized, and thoughtfully done. A great timeline of the ship yard history, and people who were employed there. No charge, it is really free! Great location for those waiting for a ferry, or just walking around in Bremerton.

There is a lot of history surrounding the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The museum gives you a glimpse into the past. Their photos and exhibits document the history and importance of Bremerton and the Navy for many years. The facility is children friendly. People who take the time to read the information in the exhibits will be amazed with the... More

Wonderful museum for all ages. We had a bit of time before our ferry, and this was recommended to us. So glad we were early for the boat so we could visit this little museum. A real treat!

Once upon a time, the Puget Sound Naval Museum was a great place to see and learn about the history of the Navy in this area, and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS). That is no longer the case, and hasn't been in several years. Back in the early 80's the museum was in the old, now demolished ferry building in... More

Since you can't get into the shipyard, this is the best way to see the sights and history of America's GREATEST public shipyard. It is well worth the time and is amazingly kid friendly.

We were waiting for my son and found the museum. It was the best simulation of life on a aircraft carrier. Help me understand a small glimpse of a sailors life on board. So impressed with the presentation had to donate since it was free. A DEFINITE SEE...
