About the Navy SEAL Museum


The ground upon which The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial stands in Fort Pierce, Florida is recognized as the birthplace of the U. S. Navy Frogmen. Plan a visit.  

From 1943 to 1946, thousands of brave volunteers were trained as members of Naval Combat Demolition Units and Underwater Demolition Teams. The World War II Frogmen have evolved into the most elite fighting force in the world, the U. S. Navy SEALs. The Mission of the Museum is to preserve the legacy and history of these “Teams”. Read about some of our exhibits here.  

The National Navy SEAL Museum and Memorial was formally dedicated in November of 1985 and is the only national museum in the state of Florida. Since that time, a continuous stream of history and artifacts have found a home in Ft. Pierce.  

In 2007, by Act of Congress, the Museum was designated as the Official National Museum of the U.S. Navy SEALs and their predecessors. Despite this designation, the Museum receives no federal funding and is entirely reliant on private donations.
