The New World War II Gallery is Now Open - National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum
Home » 2018 Events » The New World War II Gallery is Now Open

The remodeled World War II Gallery is now open! The entirely renovated gallery completes the Museum’s entirely remodeled west wing, following construction of last year’s Cold War Gallery update.

After major renovation in 2014 and 2015, we have continued to update and modernize our galleries and grounds, with the addition of interactive installations, the subsequent acquisition of vehicles and vessels, and the implementation of touch-screens at several exhibits.

Be sure to visit the newest gallery to learn more about the origins of the Frogmen, born on the beaches of Fort Pierce where the Navy SEAL Museum stands. Forerunners to today’s Navy SEALs were those trained in special maritime commando units for reconnaissance and demolition during World War II. They were known as Scouts & Raiders (S &R), Office of Strategic Services Maritime Units (OSSMU), Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDU), or Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT).
