This museum far exceeded our expectations and is a fabulous museum that honors Navy SEALs and their predecessors. There is a movie, but we were pressed for time so did not watch it. There are several short videos through the museum which contains historical items, such as the life boat from Maersk Alabama. There is a display of weaponry, as well as mock-ups of weapons the SEALs carry so one can get an idea as to how much the weapons weigh. There is also a fallen SEAL memorial.
The displays are highly informative and give information pertaining what the SEALS go through in their training. There are also displays for the SEAL predecessor organizations.
Outside there are static displays of aircraft and boats, some of which you can go aboard. There is also an obstacle course.
The museum is open 10am until 4pm Tuesday through Saturday and noon until 4pm on Sunday, closed on Monday. Admission for adults (13 and older): $10, children ages 6 through 12: $5, and children 5 and under are free. Memberships are also available. We used a Groupon and had no problem when presenting it at the entrance. Parking is free. There is a gift shop that sells items with the SEAL logo, other military logo items, plush toys, books, etc.
The museum also supports the Trident House which helps provide critical and complimentary visits for the families of SEALs who were killed in action and for battle worn or injured SEALs and their families. The museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
This is a very good museum and well worth spending an afternoon learning about these brave men. I’m sure we will visit again when friends/family visit us.
