We were at the aquarium when we spotted people touring a ship next door. My son and I love military and history stuff. We thought why not. The cost was only $10 for adults and... read more

We were at the aquarium when we spotted people touring a ship next door. My son and I love military and history stuff. We thought why not. The cost was only $10 for adults and $5 for kids. I wish I would have read the sign because veterans get in for $5 dollars as well. The ship tour was at... More

Went there to show the kids part of history. Their grandfather was on a ship much like this one for 18 months. An important piece of history

Pleasantly surprised on this rainy afternoon to visit a real piece of history. Busch Gardens was rained out so we needed something to do in Tampa. Trip advisor mentioned this exhibit so we headed over. Really cool and worth the $10 dollars. I could see that it could get very hot in the summer heat but we lucked out today... More

Very hot in July. It has one small air conditioned room where you can dry out. We took the unguided tour. You are able to inspect all the upper levels of the ship but not the hold. It was very interesting for the whole family including the smaller ones. The staff is very knowledgeable and kind if you have questions.The... More

Like all Old Navy ships, there us no A/C so July was probably not the best time to visit but it was an interesting 1-2 hours. Got in half price because I showed my receipt from the Aquarium.

Did not schedule a private tour but was lucky enough to get one. Would not do without one. Would also not do in the summer Super hot! Want to go again in the winter. Boys 14, 12 and 10 enjoyed.

Been to this ship both during the day and at night for a ghost hunting trip (no sightings, but still a geat visit). Self paced tours are what you make of them. You can close your eyes and almost imagine the sounds of ship mates going about their daily tasks. Very reasonably priced for the money. Family friendly also. Not... More

The ship was interesting but it was extremely hot inside. There were no written plaques to explain what the ship was about or what the equipment did. Didn't learn much about the ship.

This self guided tour of a WW2 era ship was fascinating for our family. All 4 of us enjoy history, and this did not disappoint. Yes, it is hot in the summer, but I feel that it gave us a greater sense of appreciation to those that served aboard ships like this. We spent most of our time exploring the... More
