With your help, the Museum will:

Showcase the best of its Naval and Merchant Marine collections (including many artifacts never before exhibited)

Use new technology for visitors to gain a deeper appreciation of the naval history of Los Angeles Harbor.

Present an amazing, interactive 11 ½ foot model of the aircraft carrier USS NIMITZ, custom-built over a period of 20 years. It will be the centerpiece of the room!
