  • At the moment there is a sign on the door that says the building is closed because its one of the oldest buildings on Mare Island. It will remain closed until the structural issues have been addressed. But I visited some years ago with my son we both had fun learning the history of Mare Island.
  • This place is huge and features tons of artifacts including extensive photos and many complete examples of various uniforms on mannequins. Placed in an original warehouse type of building off the drydocks. Extensive photo displays recount life both as naval personnel and shipyard workers.
