A very nice museum and the admission is free. I always recommend it to visitors from out of town. If you need information on Navy Vessels there is a Library located on the top floor. It is quite extensive. Outdoor exhibits include Deep Quest and others.

I have been to a lot of museums, this one has a great collection of undersea items. A fun place to spend a hour or two.

The displays are so informative and you learn all that you need to know about torpedoes and how they evolved over the centuries. I think that Benjamin Franklin designed one submarine. They were used in the Civil War! Kids love it. Bring them along!

Learning for the kids without them really knowing they were learning as lot of hands on things. Not being a Navy family as we are Army it was nice to learn about Navy life and the kids had a blast.

It's easy to spend a couple of hour here. The museum combines a good history of submarines and divers (starting with Gilgamesh!) with good, modern information about the ocean, plate tectonics, and climate change. As the history moves into the 20th century, one gets a good sense of the increasingly important role of subs in modern warfare.

This is a rather small museum that falls in the "must see" category. The museum has excellent exhibits on diving gear, WW II submarine warfare and has an outstanding display on life on the modern atomic subs. The kids (old and young) can peer through a subs periscope and hit the controls for interactive displays on undersea marine life. It... More

We took our young grandchildren. All of us learned a lot and the kids loved the hands on exhibits. A small shop on site for souvenirs.

This museum is a must visit if visiting the Kitsap County area as the county is known for their navy presence. Great knowledge about the submarines and best of all- FREE!

We were exploring Bainbridge when we learned of the Bangor naval base. My husband loves museums so when we learned we couldn't get into the base without more preparation, we stopped here for a quick tour! Jerry greeted us so warmly, he is originally from Wisconsin so no wonder we loved him! The displays were so informative and well laid... More
