Having served as a Seabee I had to stop by while in the area. Unfortunately it was a Thursday and museum was closed. However I was still able to walk around and look at the Quonset huts, memorials and the chapel in the pines. Oh and lets not forget the famous Bee. Wish I'd have caught it on a day... More

This is a very small museum trying to get established. Should be very interesting to Seabees or those that remember Quonset Point in its hayday. No complaining, the museum is free. Rhode Islanders should visit and be aware of their history. Check hours as they have limited visiting days; adjacent parking available.

Interesting to learn about the Sea Bees (my uncle was one in WWII)... and you have to love the statue of the sea-bee that welcomes you to the area. Unique branch of the service, to be honored. Fun to know where Quonset huts originated.

My husband was born in Newport so we decided to visit Rhode Island to see where he was born. My late father-in-law was a Seabee so my husband and I were both interested in seeing this. It was closed on Monday, the day we visited. However, we walked around and visited the different Quonset huts. My father worked for the... More

An amazing tribute and it's even better that it is all volunteer founded, funded and created. A rare find! If you have an interest in US History, you know a veteran or are a veteran or active duty, you will enjoy your time at this museum. The displays include Seabee equipment, uniforms, tools, weapons, photos and stories from WWII to... More

The Seabee Museum in Quonset is a tribute to an important service in the U.S. military history - especially the great accomplishments in WW2. The museum is relatively small but has informative exhibits as well as some of the original Quonset huts. This is the actual location of the original headquarter base of the service, which has since been decommissioned.... More

My husband is a military and aviation buff and was absolutely devastated when we decided to go to the Quonset Air Museum and found out it was closed indefinitely because of a roof failure during a snowstorm. (He was even more upset seeing all the historic airplanes from the museum out parked next to the water being exposed to corrosive... More

Went to visit this museum while visiting in the area. I remembered the Fighting Bee from when I was a child although I knew little about it. We visited on a Friday morning and had a volunteer in the store/museum that explained much of the history and artifacts within the area. The work on this museum is done by volunteers... More

Very newly moved into their new building, but it is looking great! A great chance for people to explore one of the best units in the Navy! Seabees both build and fight. Truly multi-purpose. The museum has done a great job of highlighting Davisville Rhode Island's contribution to our freedom. The memorial park is a good place to contemplate that... More
