Looking for an Event or Conference Venue?

Look no further. The National Museum of the United States Navy, located in Bldg. 76 at the Washington Navy Yard, has just what you're looking for. Whether it be for a retirement, promotion, change of command, or a conference room for training, we can accommodate your needs. We have two ceremonial locations to choose from.

The ceremonial spaces can accommodate up to 100 people (standing) and 50/60 people (seated) in the Main Museum (Bldg. 76) and 65 people (standing) and 45 people (seated) in the Cold War Gallery (Bldg. 70). We also can host stand-up or sit-down receptions.

The Museum Education Center will hold up to 49 people with tables or 65 people auditorium style and we have an overhead projector and computer for your use. We also offer the Ready Room Theater (a mockup of a real carrier ready room) which holds 23 people.

There is no charge to use our facilities for official functions during normal working hours and we are also available for private evening functions (applicable charges apply). For further information or to schedule one of our venues, please contact our Administrative Officer/Events Coordinator, James Creasman, at (202) 433-2385 or
