  • Really well curated. Amazing model ships. My father and I both enjoyed the time here very much.
  • Well detailed history of the Navy and its origins in Newport, RI. Very well done museum at this waterfront location on Newport's Navy base. Need to get clearance and show valid ID at gate to gain access onto the base.
