Welcome to the United States Naval Shipbuilding Museum Online. Located in historic Quincy, Massachusetts. The USNSM is home to the USS Salem CA 139, the world's only preserved Heavy Cruiser. This 716.5 foot long Cold War veteran served proudly as the Flag Ship of the 6th Fleet and now serves as a memorial to the proud shipbuilding heritage of this country and specifically this area. We are located in the former Fore River Shipyard, Quincy, once one of the Nation's largest Shipbuilding Enterprises.
