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

I'm a former submariner, it was great to see such as a rich history of the submarine displayed here with artifacts from WW2, modern periscopes to use, torpedoes and much more. The gift shop has a lot of things scaling from the budget-constrained visitor to those with some $$ to spend. I had the opportunity to interact with one of... More

This was a great place to spend a few hours! Grandson loved all the exhibits. We will take others there when we they visit. The gift shop needs a few different selections.

I've always been fascinated by diving and submarines, so when I saw this museum while driving by, I had to go in. The museum is located in Keyport, WA, near Bremerton, and next door to the navy's undersea warfare center. There are great exhibits for kids as well as adults. Lots of history about diving and subs. Numerous torpedos are... More

Ok museum, a bit small, but it was free! Nice submarine bridge and lots of torpedoes. The Trieste II was outside and hugh.

Since this was along the highway we decided to pop in. Lovely little well done museum featuring history and education of all things underwater - diving, torpedoes, submarines, and the evolution of technology relating to all. Also a great room of oceanography to appreciate what our impact on the seas are. Appropriate for young and old!

We had planned to go hiking, but since it started raining decided to visit the undersea museum, which has lots of information on the history of submarines and of submarine exploration. It is very interesting and one (if not the only) attractions in the area that can be visited even with bad weather.

My brother in law has worked on submarines and so we decided to go the museum to learn more about subs and I have to say that this place is pretty cool. They have a lot of equipment used on military subs including the many different torpedo designs over the years. They also have some of the first undersea suits... More

I don't know if this was done by the same people who do the Smithsonian Museums in DC but it is definitely the same quality level of both information & artifacts. It's relatively small - I only had 30 minutes to spend and saw a lot of it, but I could have easily spent 2 hours looking at everything. It... More

The artifacts and interactive displays are first rate. Have you ever sat at the dive controls of a nuclear sub before?
