The Navy SEAL Museum San Diego Secures Prime Location in Downtown San Diego

The legendary Navy SEAL Museum is finally dropping anchor in the heart of downtown San Diego, and it’s about to make some serious waves!

The Museum has signed a lease at 1001 Kettner Boulevard in Downtown San Diego to build a museum honoring the history and heritage of the U.S. Navy SEALs. This location was formerly utilized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.

Scheduled to open in late 2024, the 10,000-square-foot NSMSD will be within walking distance of the San Diego bayfront and serve as the preview of a larger, world-class museum to be built in the coming years.

This showcase museum will engage visitors of all ages through immersive storytelling, galleries, activated artifacts, engaging digital media, and interactive exhibits.

A Legacy and Vision for the Future

“This museum has been several years in the making, and we’ve secured the ideal space in the heart of San Diego—an iconic location for an iconic force—near Naval Base Coronado, where all Navy SEALs are trained and led, and in a region where more than 600,000 military veterans reside,” said retired SEAL Master Chief Rick Kaiser, the Navy SEAL Museum’s Chief Executive Officer.

“The museum will be both educational and emotional with moments of excitement and reflection that we believe will inspire visitors of all ages to a life of service, patriotism, and an appreciation of our military. Perhaps a few of the next generation will aspire to become Navy SEALs,” he added.

The NSMSD promises to be a major tourist draw in the San Diego and greater Southern California region, bringing additional visitors and revenue to the surrounding areas.

It also plans to be an active partner in the region and will invest in educational programs that benefit public schools and local communities.

“The San Diego Tourism Authority has long supported the Navy SEAL Museum San Diego and sharing San Diego’s rich military history with our visitors,” said Julie Coker, president and CEO of San Diego Tourism Authority.

“The museum’s location will contribute to the vibrancy of downtown while creating jobs, volunteer opportunities, and resources for veterans. This project aligns with our mission to enhance the destination experience and support the local economy.”
