You really cant imagine the immensity of this ship until you see it in person! The firepower that it has! We toured it for hours, inside the turrets, control room, quarters, etc. It was amazing. It can give one an appreciation of what our country and servicemen experienced during WW2 and Vietnam. The history of the ship as it went... More

We took a self-guided tour and with the signage and volunteers stationed at various locations, we really got a feel for the ship and how life would have been on it. Very impressive and interesting to see how it was modified to serve the Navy during various engagements ranging from World War II to the Persian Gulf War. Standing by... More

I have been to aquarium couple of times, but have always gave this one a miss. What an experience, the battleship just so huge, it's hard to believe these ones can have almost everything inside. The ship is well maintained, staff is courteous and answered questions we had. Overall, a must see place.

I was just amazed with the massive size of this ship. We toured the ship for 2 hours and just hit the highlights. I couldn't believe the tour just kept going and going. All interesting stuff. The guns were incredible. The Tomahawk missile system was cool. There was even a helicopter on the deck. The bridge with the 18" thick... More

I was surprised to see my and other intel computers still sitting in the CEC for anyone to see. Things were scrambled in a way that confused me but a lot of the real gear was there. I was also surprised at how much my 7 yr-old daughter loved it. She was really proud to see the Electronic Warfare Award... More

Chose to visit the Adventure Aquarium on a rainy day and learned about the battleship tour so my teenage kids wanted to do it too. Good decision and worth the money. Even though it rained slightly on us we still got to do everything since most of the outside part has some protection. The view from top parts of the... More

An awesome trip into the past. Spent about 2 1/2 hours touring the ship. Took the self guided audio tour, would probably opt for the guided tour next time.

I recently took my father (70) and my two oldest boys (8 and 6) to the battleship. We went on the self guided tour (without the audio upsell). Our total time on the boat was just under 2 hours. The boat is massive. There were many places to explore. Some interesting historical placards were there to read when my sons... More

This is really a great spot for some history. I only recommend not going with young children (in my case 2 and 5 year old girls) as they might find it a little scary. I would definitely recommend taking a tour as you can easily get lost.
