The museum is expected to open in early 2022.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Presiding Officer Rob Calarco today announced a $ 500,000 equity investment to fund netting near the LT. Michael P. Murphy Navy SEAL Museum for the Protection of the Public and the Museum. The museum is located on the county’s property and is adjacent to the county’s West Sayville golf course.

The funding will replace nets on the east side of the driving range of West Sayville Golf Course to ensure safety.

“I can’t think of a better investment than one that protects the LT. Michael P. Murphy Navy SEAL Museum, ”said Steve Bellone, Suffolk County executive. “This museum will serve as a memory of the LT victims. Murphy and all of our service members do. The museum will honor his memory and celebrate the courage of others like him who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. “

“I am proud to call Suffolk County the home of the LT. Michael P. Murphy Navy Seal Museum, ”said Chairman Officer Rob Calarco. “I am even more proud that the Suffolk County Government can make a commitment to ensure the success of this project.”

“As Chair of the Veterans and Consumers Committee, I am proud to support the county’s capital investment for the LT. Michael P. Murphy Museum, ”said Majority Leader Susan A. Berland. “This museum will educate generations to survive the victims of LT. Murphy and his colleagues and serve as a home to train and train our future Navy Seals. “

Daniel J. Murphy, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, LT. Michael P. Murphy Navy SEAL Museum said, “The county funding for golf towers and nets will not only provide some level of protection for all of our visitors to the LT Michael P. Murphy Navy SEAL Museum in Charles R. Dominy Park, but will continue to do so to reflect County Executive Steve Bellone’s strong support for all of our veteran facilities and the concerns of veterans in general. We appreciate this strong support from Suffolk County and its citizens. “

Last week, County Executive Bellone joined officials on the museum grounds to deliver a replica U.S. Navy SEAL Delivery Vehicle, a manned submersible vehicle used to deliver United States Navy SEALs and their equipment for special operations and missions. The mini submarine SDV is a replica of the LT. Murphy has settled in.

The LT. The Michael P. Murphy Navy Seal Museum is located in West Sayville on the grounds of the West Sayville Golf Course. The site that broke ground in late 2017 will be the second Navy SEAL Museum to be built, which will commemorate, reflect and provide lasting memorial service to all U.S. Marines who have served and who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Inside the museum, visitors experience a museum and education center that creates personal and emotional connections with our Special Warfare Operators and the ideals and values ​​that define the SEAL community. Throughout the museum, visitors have several opportunities to meet, interact with, and learn about the SEAL community through films and videos that honor Navy SEALs. The museum is scheduled to open in early 2022.
