Seabee Museum and Memorial Park is a non-profit military history museum in Davisville, Rhode Island, devoted to the Seabees of the U.S. Navy.

Quonset Point, where the Seabee Museum is located was a major United States Navy base during World War II, home to the Naval Air Station Quonset Point and the birthplace of the iconic Quonset Hut. In the 1990s a group of former Seabees decided to found and construct the museum themselves. The museum is a non-profit museum developed on 6.5 acres (26,000 m2) by former U.S. Navy Seabees. The museum includes the former Navy concrete chapel, seven vintage Quonset huts (saved from the demolition of nearby Camp Endicott), and a huge Seabee statue; and the non-profit Quonset Air Museum located in buildings that were originally built for the Naval Air Station Quonset Point (NASQP).

  • It was nice to see this area made into a museum. The bee and some Quonset huts have been carefully restored. The museum is free, but they do accept donations. There is also a small gift shop with lots of Seabee items such as tshirts available. All items have been donated to this museum so it took lots of folks to make this happen
  • Excellent place to visit this the original home of the US Navy SEABEES lots of history about the work done by the seabees.
