About the museum: The museum is the only official U.S. Navy museum that interprets the Navy’s undersea activities. It has the nation’s most comprehensive collection of Navy artifacts, documents and reference material related to undersea subjects. Among its exhibits, the museum has a highly interactive exhibit that explores the key properties of the ocean. There also are exhibits on torpedo technology, mine warfare, submarine rescue and the role submarines had in World War II. Visitors also can step inside a replica of the control room from the USS Greenling, including periscopes and control panels. Outside the museum stands the sail from the USS Sturgeon. It was saved in 1985 when the nuclear submarine was dismantled at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton.
Of note: The museum is open daily from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The museum is closed Tuesdays from October-April.
