We were touring downtown Bremerton and noticed this attraction. Found a parking place nearby and entered. Volunteers were most helpful in explaining the museum and we spent almost 1 hour looking at the exhibits. Would have stayed longer but unsure of the parking laws in the area. Worth visiting.

This is a very good display of life in the Navy past and present. Designed for all ages to enjoy. There is an area for younger visitors to dress up and play. We found the narrations and displays very informative yet easy to understand. The free admission which is an added bonus!

Excellent experience. Interactive; many hands-on exhibits. Fun children's room. This museum contributes to understanding naval history, but visitors also learn a bit about Washington state history. Some exhibits make you feel like you are part of the Navy, listening to sonar tracking potential enemy submarines. Only about two blocks from the Bremerton Ferry dock; so convenient to take the ferry... More

Everyone was very friendly and if we had any questions they were available. The museum was clean and quiet. There were interactive scenes. You could dress up as a sailor. The tattoo gallery was cool.

Nice Veterans at the front desk welcome you. There is no cost. I found it very interesting. It is only a 50 minute ferry ride from Seattle and right there on your left when you disembark.

Got to see how the Bremerton Navy Yard worked way back in the day. The workers had it rough. The Navy history was great. I especially like the history of the submarine warfares. Also saw a model of the USS Bremerton and others.

Took my wife to the museum to gain an appreciation of the incredible capability of this terrific shipyard. A little disappointed as they spent a lot of space on tattoos and the Associated Navy traditions. Wish there had been more about the ships built, repaired and maintained as well as the workforce.

Good information on the Bremerton ship yard, it's development over the years. Unusual exhibits on the navy's influence on baseball and tattoos.

very pleasant museum right downtown. If you are doing a walk on to the ferry, you will have plenty of time to visit this museum. I learned a few things about the area, and it's role in the navy.

Thank Mario B
