Cool Ship!

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

Very interesting, informative and fun for adults and kids. Consider spending 90 minutes to 2 hours. Might need a bit more and better information.

This was such a humbling experience because the ship was left almost completely in tact from its days in WWII, and it was amazing to see the conditions the soldiers lived under as they fought for our freedom. Everything from cannons to living quarters to food storage to the nuts and bolts of the boat. Seeing this museum makes me... More

Very neat attraction that takes you back in time. You are able to walk around and inside almost every deck and compartment. Great piece of history.

A great way to spend a few hours! There are many corridors and rooms to explore. A wonderful gem downtown.

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.
