This ship was built in 1936. My husband's ship was built at about the same time. My hat goes off to any service man who served on this ship or any like it. It was certainly worth the $10 admission fee. But, beware! This ship is not friendly for those who are physically challenged. The ladders are steep and you... More

If you want to have history in a can(joke) this is it. For such a little boat there is an incredible amount of history crammed into 300ft. Also sunset on the deck is a great place to be . We spent an enjoyable after noon with friends from out of town. I highly recommend time spent away from the hustle... More

I visited this ship which was similar to my former ship ( USCGC Chincoteage WHEC-375 ) and while it has been over 45 years was like I was 20 years old again. I only wish the US Coast Guard would take a helping hand with providing money and man power to keeep this treasure from the scrap heap.

This huge ship allows for a self-guided tour that is a little all over the place - but with the close-quarters, it can only be expected. All in all it was very informative, altho a knowledgable tour guide with a good personality would've been preferable to the tinny speakers throughout the ship. It was veeeery hot inside, and once or... More

The staff of the museum was very informative. It is interesting to see the ship left as it was when it was decommissioned and still floating. Most other ship/ museums have been changed substantially.

Sitting on our rental condo balcony I could this Coast Guard Cutter tied up along the old navy quay. I googled the number USCGC 35 and found out it was a private museum preserving this historic vessel. Very reasonably priced you have access to most of the ship in a self guided tour. The museum area was especially interesting as... More

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ingham was involved in major battles of WW 2 and was the flagship for McArthur's return to the Philippines. It was decommissioned in the 1980's and now under private ownership. This is a must see visit for anyone interested in the naval history.

A dedicated group of Coast Guard veterns wholeheartedly maintain this piece of American history. The service this ship gave to our country is exhibited via a timeline in a small museum of photos and memorabilia within the ship. You walk through the ship on a self guided tour accompanied by a brochure guide and intermittent audio recordings that give the... More
