Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
(Please note, that The Ships Bell follows the schedule of the Naval War College)

The Ship's Bell, formerly known as Davey Jones Locker, has been in operation at the Naval War College in Connolly Hall, for over 39 years and is solely staffed by volunteers. The mission and all proceeds from the store support community aid, military programs and scholarships for graduating high school seniors and spouses of local military members.

We are always looking for more volunteers. If you would like to be our newest volunteer please email Mykel at milspousenewport.theshipsbell@gmail.com. A couple of hours each month can really make a difference.   

The Ship's Bell is open to anyone with a valid Military ID. Friends and Family are also welcome, as long as they are accompanied by you or the active duty member.  

The active duty member or NWC student does NOT have to accompany you to our store. 

Here's what to do:  Upon arriving at the Naval War College, enter through the main doors and check-in with security at the quarterdeck, which is located to the right of the main entrance. Once you show your Military ID and let security know that you are there to visit The Ship's Bell, they will buzz you through the appropriate doors.  Follow the hallway to the end and The Ship's Bell will be the last door on your right.
