MARE ISLAND MUSEUM

Mare Island Museum

1855: Mare Island Museum. Bldg 46 (at 1100 Railroad Avenue), the oldest building on the shipyard, was originally the “smithery” where they made the metal parts to construct the ships being built or repaired here on the yard, and was in use from the day it opened in 1855 until the shipyard closed in 1996. Now, it houses a treasure trove of artifacts and information about the shipyard and the role it played in American history.
