The U.S. Navy Seabee Museum is one of the Navy's eleven official museums. Its mission is to select, collect, preserve, and display historical material relating to the history of the Naval Construction Force, better known as the Seabees, and the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps. The second oldest of the official Navy museums, the Seabee Museum was established in 1947 in Port Hueneme, California, which today is part of Naval Base Ventura County.
The new state-of-art the Seabee Museum facility is now open! The 38,000 square foot museum features modern exhibits spaces, memorial garden, theater, education room, and gift shop. Please note, however, only one-third of the exhibits are now open, but all will be completed by the fall of 2013.
The museum is located at 1001 Addor Street, Port Hueneme and is open Monday - Saturday: 9-4 and Sunday: 12-4. Closed all Federal holidays. Admission and parking are free. Too learn more, visit www.usnavyseabeemuseum.com or call 805.982.5165.
