The Education Department has primary responsibility for creating and implementing public programs. This includes creating a speakers' bureau, offering family programming, and opening the Museum's doors to the public as a community resource.
The Museum is equipped to host retirement, reenlistment, change of command, commissioning, and graduation ceremonies, as well as other special events. The Museum also offers for the public to use Seabee History pop-up banners that may be reserved for off-site events, meetings, and conferences. Requests should be made at least two weeks in advance and are subject to availability. Download and submit a signed application to begin the reservation process:
The Museum accepts event requests between 11:00 - 16:00 Monday - Saturday and online at NHHC_USNSMVisit@us.navy.mil For event requests that occur outside normal operating hours of 10:00 - 16:00, a written letter to the Museum Director will need to be included with your application request.
