The Naval Heritage Center is located in the heart of the Penn Quarter and offers visitors the chance to learn about the history and heritage of the men and women of the United States Navy – past, present and future.
Just off the Memorial plaza, the center has timely and informative interactive exhibits in the Gallery Deck and screens several movies daily, including the Discovery Channel’s “At Sea” and “A Year in the Life of A Navy Supply Corps Officer.” The Ship’s Store sells nautical and Lone Sailor-branded merchandise. The Media Resource Center provides a library of printed, audio and video historical documents on the Navy and The Navy Log room has touch-screen kiosks to register and search for Sea Service members and veterans.
