Spending a night on this ship was definitely unique experience. Exploring every corner, listening to a veteran who served on the ship, and learning so much about history made this an epic adventure for people or all age.

Great experience. Nice personnel onsite . Affordable too.A history lessen with every step. The smells of the water and the wind off the river give you a sense that this platform could be working today.

Ship is huge and open for major exploration if you're up to the narrow stairs our sailors had to use!

I was impressed by just 3 things: the films of men who had won the Medal of Honor, in which the citations were read and the men themselves explained what had happened; the small area behind the bridge where the Captain, helmsman, navigator, and fire-control officer were ensconced, surrounded by 16” thick steel with small slits so they could see...
