This museum is free and run by volunteers, many are veterans. The second floor has so many hands-on elements and videos and is very engaging for all ages. I will definitely be visiting again!

This museum is well laid out; and an excellent use of Building 50 which itself is a piece of history. I in fact spent many hours in that building back in the late 70's studying for exams when I was stationed on the USS Long...More

Fabulously curated with care. We enjoyed almost 2 hours perusing all of the exhibits. It truly gave me a whole new appreciation of the Navy, the shipyard, and life aboard an aircraft carrier.

Lots of interesting things to see, and even a place for young children to play. Very clean and modern. Best part is that it's free! There's a pretty little park right next to this museum as well.

Amazing to have a FREE museum of this quality. The only drawback is parking. None around the building. Public parking is about 3 blocks away and has a limit of 2 hours. Because of this, I felt rushed to get back before the "meter maid."
