Interest facts about the shipyard and the building of subs but not too many displays. Museum is in an old house so you need to climb stairs.

This is a well presented museum but I would not travel out here to specifically see it. The history of the Bremerton Yards is well told but I suspect it could be more comprehensive. The AV presentation of life on Stennis is very well done and we enjoyed it. A good overview for anyone with no naval background. But if... More

This is a little hidden surprise that had a comprehensive display of a workaday life in a modern Navy Ship. The kids loved the little interactive "Land the Fighter Jet" feature.

The kids have a whole room in which to play with uniforms to dress up in. They have a toy submarine with tow sea creature inside, a miniature galley, and space to be kids. The adults could watch videos of shipyard workers telling about their careers and what they do for our country. You can try a lift with a... More

Had a great time sering how the shipyard and other facilities transformed over the years. Love seeing all the history and different picture of the building in the yard. Seeing the pictures of the boats and subs too.

Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The section on navy tattoos is very well done. The navy certificate room is also very interesting. Enjoy the video testimonials of life at sea, as they give civilians a peak of life on the high sea.

We visited the Naval Museum after noticing the building the previous day when we had caught the nearby ferry over to Seattle. Initially we saw this as a chance to fill in a couple of hour on a quiet day.However, from the arrival greeting from an enthusiastic volunteer( ex USN) through to the fine, relevant exhibits and excellent audio-visual presentations...

This is a cute museum right on the Puget Sound. It took my sister and I about 30 minutes to walk through it, which included stopping to read some of the pieces. I would say it takes about an hour to get the full experience. Free entrance, runs on donations and gift sales. Sign the guest book!

The Puget Sound Naval Museum is located on Bremerton and can be reached from Seattle by ferry. It is a grand white columned building just to the left of the ferry dock. It is full of navy memorabilia and history of the shipyard located next door. Lots of historical pictures, bells, whistles, engines, uniforms and the like. So if you're... More
