Beautifully maintained ships, what a wonderful experience to be able to board and look around. Museum is interesting as well.
This is a must... do the ship, but make sure to tour the museum. There is no "set fee", but contributions are accepted, and certainly worth it. An interactive museum for little ones, and enjoyable for teenagers. Very impressed!
Very kid friendly. Make time for them to play interactive games. My kids loved the role playing on the second floor. Find out what a young man experienced as he became a sailor. There is also a gift shop, which we didn't have time to explore. Even toddlers will enjoy running around.

It is generally thought that the public's reaction to this widely-published poem... More

We tend to miss these great attractions in our back yards but this amazing little piece of history is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Pleasant location on the waterfront and the amazing ship will give you insights of what the battles were like in it's day. Take the time to walk around the dock area and... More
