In preparation for the relocation to the new state-of-the-art museum facility, the old museum will be closing the doors to the World War II Quonset huts that it has called home since 1956 on September 30, 2010.
A display chronicling the history of the Seabees and Civil Engineer Corps since 1942 will… remain open Monday through Friday from 1000 – 1400. In addition, the museum store will remain will open for limited hours (Monday through Friday from 1000 – 1400) in order to provide service to Seabees and their families with base access. For more information about the museum store, including their on-line catalog, visit their website at www.seabeemuseumstore.org.
In an effort to share the excitement about the new building, the museum will open the new facility to the public three times a month. Beginning October 5, 2010, the new museum will be open the first and third Tuesday and first Saturday of each month from 1000 to 1400. These open house opportunities will provide visitors with a “sneak peek” of the new building and will give them a chance to see “behind-the-scenes” of a museum. Museum staff will be available to give tours and the museum store will be open.
