The Coast Guard marked the official start of construction of the National Coast Guard Museum on the City Pier in New London, Connecticut, during a ceremony Aug. 19. Join Admin. Linda Fagan, the commanding officer, were Democratic Representatives Rose DeLauro and Joe Courtney and Senator Richard Blumenthal – all from Connecticut.

Once open, the museum will consist of six floors and 80,000 square feet of exhibit space – all dedicated to those who have served past and present.

“I am excited about the National Coast Guard Museum as a place where we can share our history and our stories with the American public,” Fagan said at the ceremony. “I appreciate the many people who have worked hard to bring us here, and I look forward to seeing this new museum take shape.”
