Description:

Our mission is to generate a public understanding of the impact the community and U.S. Navy base at Dahlgren, Virginia have had in using science and technology to strengthen national defense, particularly through support of war-fighters. Our key holdings include a scale model of a Civil War-era Dahlgren gun, the propeller from the first radio-controlled, unmanned flight, and Norden bombsight. Other exhibits include a 16-inch shell, electromagnetic rail gun projectiles, and other historic items related to Dahlgren.
