Navy SEAL Museum
Located in Ft. Pierce down in Florida, is a special and unique Navy SEAL museum. The museum is in the original training area for the first Underwater Demolition Teams formed in 1943. It was founded in the 1980s by a group of retired SEALs in an effort to preserve its history, let the public know the role SEALs played in the war effort, and to honor the servicemen who trained there.
Items on display include helicopters, jeeps, water vehicles, weaponry, a drone, and model of the compound where Osama Bin Laden was taken out by Navy SEALs
Next time you are down in Florida visiting Disney World, take a little time and stop on by to learn more about the Navy Frogman.

A wonderful experience and an opportunity to remember the contributions these patriots make to our freedom. God bless you all.
A buddy tells me the bathysphere Triest is located close by as we'll. Pensacola isn't too far up the road, you can see the US Naval Aviation Museum, again very kid friendly.
Stopped by last summer with my wife and 3 kids, thought we would stay for an hour. 3 hours later...... Well worth the visit and very kid friendly.
My parents went there when the vacationed down there last month... Brought me back a shirt, Froglube, and some stickers.
Pensacola is actually not far from Ft Walton Beach. The museum is south of Cape Canaveral/NASA. Panhandle vs east coast. It is a WONDERFUL place to visit! They have the lifeboat from the Maersk Alabama....that was pretty awesome to see. Well worth a visit....or two!!!
