    It was nice. It was free and I enjoyed my time there.

    There is an interesting memorial to the US Navy on Pennsylvania Avenue just past the National Archives building that is worth a quick look-see if you are in the area. In the centre of the memorial is a granite sea map of the world surrounded by a circular structure followed by what seemed like a pool and fountain. However, this was turned off during our winter time visit. On the backside or the circular Memorial Plaza, you can find bronze reliefs of naval war scenes and there is a lone statue of a US Navy serviceman statue nearby as well. Overall, this is a decent memorial but would probably be better to visit during warmer months of the year so you can taken in the effect of the fountains and with the trees in the area having foliage.

    So much to read about the different eras & communities of Naval Service. Frequently the site of concerts & ceremonies. Usually shady from the surrounding buildings. Not much parking nearby.

    Very impressive, small but informative museum. And a wonderful air conditioning system. It was really cool to see the Navy drill team.

    This is a small plaza right the street. There's a statue of a lone sailor off center. The floor of the plaza is actually a map of the world oceans and a large compass rose. The sailor's expression is somewhat haunting to me, it seems he's looking out over the sea with familiarity and across the sea with longing, (perhaps for home). I was honored to be able to visit these memorials with the Kern County Honor Flight of US veterans.
