The Ocean Environment:

The Ocean Environment lets visitors experience the remarkable and limitless diversity of the world that lies beneath the sea.  Using hands-on activities, visitors learn about the physical properties of the ocean such as buoyancy, pressure, density, heat transfer, light, sound, salinity, and oxygen.  A microscope with slides of sea creatures, such as starfish and diatoms lets children and adults see some of the fascinating creatures which make up the web of life in the ocean.

Torpedo Technology:

The Naval Undersea Museum has the most comprehensive permanent display of torpedoes in the United States.

The exhibit includes the Howell torpedo manufactured in 1890.  Visitors will see one of the few Whitehead torpedoes on display in the United States.

Mine Warfare Technology:

The exhibit traces the history of mine warfare from the Revolutionary War through the Civil War with a Confederate mine captured at the 1864 Battle of Mobile Bay.  The exhibit interprets and provides examples of mines used during World War I and II, and modern operations.

Submarine Technology:

The exhibits include Submarines in WWII and the Greenling Control Room, which is a simulation of the control room of the nuclear fast attack submarine Greenling (SSN 614).  The museum has installed major equipment such as periscopes, ship control panel, and ballast control panel from the Greenling in a simulation of Greenling’s control room.

Diving:

The museum collects all types of Navy helmet and free diving equipment as well as civilian equipment which relates to Navy use or development.

Currently, the museum has a Women Divers exhibit which focuses on some of the first female U.S. Navy divers.

Temporary Exhibits:

The museum regularly schedules temporary exhibits which highlight special aspects of Navy history or contemporary undersea activities.  The current temporary exhibit is the Trident Family:  Service and Sacrifice.  This exhibit is about the Sailors who serve onboard the Trident class submarines and their families.

Outdoor Exhibits:

Outdoor exhibits at the museum include submersibles and portions of submarines:

·The sail of the USS Sturgeon (SSN 637) lead ship of a class of 37 nuclear, fast attack submarines built and operated between 1963 and the present.

·Trieste II (DSV-I), the deep submergence vehicle which descended to 20,000 feet.

·Deep Quest, the Navy’s research submersible which explored the ocean to a depth of 8,000 feet.

Submarine Technology

The museum’s submarine technology exhibits, currently under development, will interpret the history of the technological achievements made by the United States Navy in the development of submarines.

The exhibits will focus on how submarines operate and how they can be built to provide crew safety and mission accomplishment in an extremely demanding environment.

Picture: Simulation of Greenling's Control Room

Currently complete and open to the public is a simulation of the control room of the nuclear fast attack submarine Greenling (SSN 614) which was decommissioned in 1994.  The museum has installed major equipment such as periscopes, ship control panel, and ballast control panel from the Greenling in a simulation of Greenling’s control room.
