it was a great expericence having to go on this ship and getting an idea of how the marines life was inside a ship. When you go on this ship pay attention to every detail and read its very interesting. I will be going back soon.

very interesting and well kept. keep in mind, this isn't wheelchair friendly or accessible to bigger people because of the small spaces and narrow ladders. overall it was very interesting and well put together.

An enjoyable and educational day out with our grandsons. They are still talking about it! Thank you~

Easy to find and easy to park.It is a great place to wander and experience history.
