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.

We enjoyed walking around the museum. Upstairs they have more specifics on submarines and history of tattoos and baseball affiliated with the war, which was kind of cool. And if you get a chance, go on a tour of the naval ship located at the other end of the pier

My 17 year old daughter and I went through this museum quickly but could have spend more time. It is a nice interactive museum with great memorabilia and artifacts. Highly recommend!

Didn't expect much for this museum being free. Was I in for a pleasant surprise. The museum covers the Naval shipyard, but also highlights the USS Stennis which is the ship our son is currently serving on. They have an actual bunk with lockers on display. Our younger children were able to see how their older sailor brother sleeps (... More

Having a great uncle that worked as a shipfitter in the 1930 to the 1950's the ship museum gave us a better idea of his life. Staff members were happy to answer any questions and the gift shop prices were the best in the area. Buy there.
