Located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park is a great place to discover military history. This museum began as an idea of a number of retired Navy Seabees who wanted to share their experiences and memories about their work. When the Navy decided to stop operating in the original home of the Seabees in Camp Endicott, Rhode Island, the land as well as the buildings was transferred under the care of the state. The Island X-1 group then approached the state to help them preserve some of the most important parts of the area.

Upon the agreement to move some parts of the Seabee home to another area, the dream to preserve the most important parts of the museum came true. Included in the buildings that survived today are the historic concrete Chapel-in-the-vines and three ammunition bunkers.

Today, visitors to the museum will be able to see the numerous contributions of the Navy Seabees to the US military. There are numerous photo exhibits as well as hundreds of memorabilia which visitors will surely learn something from. Additionally the museum also has a memorial ground honoring the departed members of the Navy Seabees.
