Mission

The mission of the U.S. Navy Seabee Museum is to select, collect, preserve and display historic material relating to the history of the Naval Construction Force, better known as the Seabees, and the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps.

History

The United States Navy Seabee Museum was established in 1947 and is the second oldest Navy museum in the Naval History and Heritages Command (NHHC) system. The Museum is under the Naval History and Heritage Command and supported by the CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation.

The Museum is located outside the perimeter fence of the Naval Base Ventura County in Port Hueneme, California. A new 38,338 square foot museum facility was built in 2010, moving the museum outside the naval base to allow the general public to be able to access and visit the museum.

The United States Navy Seabee Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits artifacts related to the history of the United States Navy Engineer Corps and the Naval Construction Force, better known as the Seabees. The Naval Construction Force builds and maintains the United States naval shore establishments around the globe and supports amphibious operations of the Navy’s expeditionary force. Seabees also perform global humanitarian missions such as well-drilling and disaster relief. Established in 1941, they served as the construction force for the Navy during World War II. The Seabees’ “Can Do” attitude made them legendary within the Armed Forces, and their character epitomized the resilience of that generation. The “Can Do” attitude still drives today’s Seabees: “the difficult we do immediately, the impossible takes a little longer.”
