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, which today is part of Naval Base Ventura County.
The Seabee Museum was recently renovated and is quite a beautiful, state-of-art facility. The 38,000 square foot museum features modern exhibit spaces, memorial garden, theater, education room and well-stocked gift shop (gotta bring the kids to this one...they'll love the Seabee items).
The museum is located at 1001 Addor Street, Port Hueneme and is open Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. Closed Sundays and all Federal holidays. Admission and parking are free. Learn more at www.history.navy.mil/content/history/museums/seabee.html or call 805.982.5165.
