The museum possesses the Navy's best collection of U.S. torpedoes, beginning with the Howell, the Navy's second-oldest torpedo, and continuing through modern Mk 48 and Mk 50 torpedoes. The collection also includes one of the few Whitehead torpedoes on display in the United States. In addition to the torpedoes and torpedo equipment on display, the museum's collection includes additional torpedoes as well as books, technical manuals, maintenance manuals and equipment, and photographs.
