Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum

project type

New Construction, Renovation

year completed


The new Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum and Park at Pearl Harbor is a state-of-the-art museum and an interactive memorial.

One of the few museums in the world where you can learn about the US Navy’s Submarine Force, it is a valuable resource featuring the WWII fleet submarine, USS Bowfin, exhibits, multi-media, and interactive displays.

Working with the Seattle-based Architecture firm MIG Portico (MIG), MASON completed services as the local architect for construction administration alongside local contractor, Constructor’s Hawaii Ltd., at the Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum and Park (formerly known as the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park) adjacent to the neighboring Pearl Harbor Historic Sites Visitors Center. 

The official grand re-opening took place in early 2021.
