Battleship, submarine, destroyer, and East German naval ship all open for visiting. Also other military artifacts on the museum grounds, along with WW 2 PT Boats inside. Low key and self guided tours for the history buff.

As a child we use to go there yearly to visit the ships. My dad served on one of the ships that are there. He was and still is proud of showing us and now his Grandchildren his ship. He will actually be there to day with his grand kids. A great place to visit great Summertime trip.

It is an honor to be able to visit the proud and powerful battleship USS Massachusetts in addition to the submarine and the PT boats. The numerous artifacts give additional credence to the courage of those who serve and another layer of humanity to their sacrifices.

A worthwhile trip for all with lots to see and do for WW II and Cold war history fans. Sitting up on the bridge of a battleship is a treat in itself and the exhibits thruout are informative and well done.

Great place to visit you can visit all three boats... There are lots of stairs and very narrow. Not a good place to visit on a very hot day or if you are claustophobic. has a great carousel on site..all in all a great place to take the family....
