I had no idea how big and interesting the naval shipyard is. Great history lesson and well done museum. Love some of the artifacts!

Nice museum for kids and adults! Free of charge but make sure to make a donation and ring the bell! Shows a brief history of the Navy as well as the area around Bremerton.

This was a great museum of the local history. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I liked the tattoo projections--you can see what a tattoo would look like on your arm--how cool.

This is a great, FREE, way to spend some time. Whether visiting for pleasure or visiting because you have time to kill before catching a ferry, this is a must see/do for young and old alike. Friendly, helpful volunteers are available for your questions, otherwise you are free to roam around looking at the exhibits, reading about naval history, and... More

This museum has fun activities for the entire family. I easily spent an hour and a half in there. One exercise was identifying the sounds of sonar spotting objects under sea.

The staff were friendly and very helpful answering questions. They also helped explain how several of the interactive displays worked. Take a few extra minutes and watch the videos of life aboard an air craft carrier explained by actual crew members. All free. Beautiful building and water park.

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.
