Conveniently located on Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. (between 7th and 9th Streets), halfway between the U.S. Capitol and the White House, the United States Navy Memorial honors the men and women of the United States Navy – past, present and future. The outdoor plaza features a “Granite Sea” map of the world, towering masts with signal flags, fountain pools and waterfalls and The Lone Sailor™ statue. The Plaza is frequently used for official ceremonies, public concerts and performances.
Just adjacent to the outdoor plaza is the Naval Heritage Center, a visitor’s center with educational displays about the contributions of the men and women of the Sea Services (Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine), The Navy Log – the permanent National Registry of Sea Service where members, veterans and their families can register a permanent record of their service for free (and search for shipmates), a 242-seat theater that airs Navy-related films daily – including a Blue Angels movie, a nautical-themed gift shop, and a Media Resource Center for researchers.
The D.C. Metro’s Green and Yellow Line stops at Archives-Navy Memorial, steps from the Memorial. Call (202) 737-2300 for more information or log onto www.navymemorial.org.
