Hello educational travelers!
Jeff is back again to share with you another wonderful museum. Enjoy!
Educational tours to Washington, D.C. can take a patriotic trip down Memory Lane at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy. Located at the Washington Navy Yard, 805 Kidder Breese Street SE, the museum was established in 1961 under the administration of President John F. Kennedy, a naval veteran of World War II. It opened to the public in 1963 and is one of fourteen naval museums throughout the country. It is the only one that presents an overview of American naval history. The National Museum of the U.S. Navy collects, preserves, displays, and interprets historic naval artifacts and artwork to inform, educate, and inspire naval personnel and the general public on educational tours to Washington, D.C.
Educational tours to Washington, D.C. will observe permanent and temporary exhibitions commemorating the Navy’s wartime heroes and battles as well as its peacetime contributions in exploration, diplomacy, navigation and humanitarian service. Known for over fifty years as the flagship museum of the U.S. Navy, the National Museum of the U.S. Navy celebrates a legacy of educating the public. In the tradition of its predecessors on the Washington Navy Yard beginning in 1865, the current museum features a collection that dates from 1800 that will awe every educational tour to Washington, D.C.
Until next time,
