The Museum historian, Julius Lacano, is available to provide Seabee History presentations; topics include the History of the Museum, the Seabees in World War II, and the Seabees in the Cold War.
In-person presentations are available in Ventura County. Distance learning presentations are available for the global community.
Julius Lacano serves as the historian at the U.S. Navy Seabee Museum (USNSM) in Port Hueneme. The Seabee Museum was founded in 1947 and is the second oldest of the ten museums that make up the Navy History and Heritage Command (NHHC) system. The Museum mission is to ensure that the construction and engineering accomplishments of the Seabees and the Civil Engineer Corps to the Navy and the nation are not forgotten, remain relevant, and inspire as many people as possible. The museum is open from 10am - 5pm Monday - Saturday.
Presentations are each about 20 minutes long and will be provided by the Museum Historian. Julius is a ten-year veteran of the United States Navy and holds an MA in History from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. Before coming to the USNSM, he worked as a docent and educator at Virginia Beach City Museum and as a Museum educator at the Hampton Roads Naval Museum (HRNM) in Norfolk, Virginia. Like the Seabee Museum, HRNM is a unit of NHHC.
