As the official history program of the United States Navy, the Naval Historical Center manages the Navy Department Library, twelve Navy museums, art collections, archives, and an underwater archaeology program. The Center prepares and publishes reference, documentary, analytical, and narrative works on the history of the United States Navy. The NHC Website allows you to research any number of naval history topics online and check out new public and educational programs and exhibits offered at Navy museums all over the country.
We frequently update and add new sections. Please check out our New Items. We encourage you to explore the different parts of the site and ask for your patience as we continue upgrading our webpages to make naval history more accessible.
We welcome your opinions on the new Website format at firstname.lastname@example.org.
