The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum
Birthplace of the Navy Frogmen
The ground upon which the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum rests in Fort Pierce, Florida is recognized as the birthplace of the U. S. Navy Frogmen. From 1943 to 1946, thousands of brave volunteers were trained as members of Naval Combat Demolition Units and Underwater Demolition Teams. The World War II Frogmen have evolved into the most elite fighting force in the world, the U. S. Navy SEALs. The Mission of the Museum is to preserve the legacy and history of these “Teams”.
The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum was formally dedicated in November of 1985. Since that time a continuous stream of history and artifacts has returned home to Ft. Pierce. The exterior exhibits include Apollo training crafts, a Vietnam-era ”Huey” helicopter, and unique water craft and support boats. Some of the last remaining beach obstacles used for training during World War II have been recovered from the ocean depths and now rest on the museum grounds.
Inside, one can learn the history of Naval Special Warfare including the beginnings of Underwater Demolition training in Ft. Pierce, exploits in the Atlantic and Pacific war theaters of World War II and histories of the various units told with photographs and artifacts of the period.
The North Gallery tells the stories of the modern era from Korea through Afghanistan. The Frogmen and SEALs have operated in almost every environment imaginable; hot, humid jungles, arctic waters and a space station orbiting the Earth. Come witness the declassified stories that can be told. Learn about heroism under fire from every conflict from Korea to Desert Storm.
Our Ship’s Store is stocked with fine gifts, memorabilia and educational materials relating to Naval Special Warfare.
