About The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum

The National Navy SEAL Museum is located in Fort Pierce, Florida, in St. Lucie County. Also known as the Navy SEAL Museum, the exhibitions educate visitors on the role of Navy Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) and Sea, Air, and Land (SEAL) teams. The Museum also highlights the history of SEALs, with the original Navy Frogmen initially being trained outside of Fort Pierce.

The focal point of the National Navy SEAL Museum at Fort Pierce is the UDT-SEAL Memorial. The Memorial includes a 500-pound bronze sculpture, standing nine feet tall, of a modern Navy SEAL. The names of all the Underwater Demolition Team members, who were known as the Frogmen of World War II, as well as the names of modern Navy SEALs who’ve died in service, are carved onto the panels of the walls surrounding the sculpture and the reflecting pool at its base.

A number of artifacts are on display on site from the start of the SEALs founding to present-day activities.

Examples of artifacts at the Museum include obstacles used during World War II demolition training before the Normandy landings, known as D-Day and the Patrol River Boat used during the Vietnam era. There is an Apollo program spacecraft, which was the actual device used for training by the UDT Frogmen, and there are different SEAL Delivery Vehicles used in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Iraq.

The Memorial Garden contains the Memorial Wall and was unveiled in 2021 to remember the fallen. The K9 Memorial is in remembrance of Combat Assault Dogs, recognizing their service from World War II to the ongoing Global War on Terror. The Living Beach contains sand from specific areas where Frogmen have trained, fought, and died.
