Busy Bees at the U.S. Navy Seabee Museum Prepare for new building Opening

Posted by brickmarkersusa on May 18, 2011

        The U.S. Navy Seabee Museum will open in its new building in two months.  On Friday, July 22nd the new facility will open its doors to the general public. 

            The re-opening is scheduled to start on the first day of the Seabee Days.  It has been a long road for the CEC/Seabee Historical Foundation to raise the necessary funds to get the facility open.  Currently the facility has been hosting open houses for the public every 1st and 3rd Tuesday, and 1st Saturday each month from 10a-2p.  Over 1,500 supporters have visited since the open houses began in October. 

            In addition to viewing the new building and touring temporary exhibits in the North gallery, museum visitors can see a piece of Seabee history in Victory Plaza, the entrance into the facility.  Brick Markers® is honored to be a part of such a historical project.  With over 4,000 bricks already installed and another 1,000 to be installed in six weeks, it is one of our bigger projects to date.  

            Victory Plaza’s bricks serve as memorials and honorariums to many service men and women, as well as the United States Navy and the museum.  The project began in 2006, and serves as a culmination of the support and service provided by thousands of people.
