Great American history . Massive aircraft carrier , tour through the submarine . Lots to see on and below deck . Shuttle was nice to see up close but would be better if one could atleast see inside through a window . Concorde was dissapointing since they have started to charge extra to walk through it .

Real;ly is cool to see the aircraft carrier in person. They have several types of planes and helicopters on the flight deck. Best part is the volunteers. We met one of the helmsmen from when the ship was in service. He told some great stories.

Where else will you get a chance to go on board a real life aircraft carrier, covered with fighter jets, then go down into a submarine, come out, pass Concorde and then walk around the viewing gallery of a NASA Space Shuttle. This place was excellent. I could have spent many more hours here looking over the information available, but... More

There are several big ship museums like this around, but the first one that my boys had ever been to. So, they LOVED it. It's been a while since I had seen a big ship like this too, so I found it really interesting as well. This boat had a ton of history and the movie they had on board... More

Paying extra to do a guided tour was definitely worth it. Our tour guide, Dylan, was excellent. He was knowledgable and able to bring the displays to life. My husband is a WW2 buff and he enjoyed the tour. I don't know as much and I enjoyed learning. If we just had to read the info on our own I... More

Awesome piece of American history! You go through all levels of the carrier. There are guides (former military) in a couple of places answering questions. The top deck has a whole bunch of neat airplanes on display. You can also go through a 1950s submarine, which is included in the general admission ticket, and take a peak at a space... More

Appreciated the ticket agent advising us to do the submarine first. It was packed on the way out. As awesome as the view is, the displays are and the various planes may be the space shuttle made the trip.

This was a fantastic learning experience for our two boys ages 8 & 7. My father and grandfather both served in the navy so really enjoyed the opportunity to share some history and appreciation on the intrepid. We spent a good 3 hours here and enjoyed every minute.

Played a tourist on July 12 with vacationing friends. Arrived around 2 in afternoon, no lines, helpful, informative staff, that was just the staff moving us along to ticket booth. Staff at booth made some suggestions for small tours to take. We purchased the Space Shuttle tour along with admittance. What a treat! Not only did the boys (my husband... More

A huge ship! Amazing big! But equally amazing small for the crew and military staff. They had to live in very small spaces, where there was lots of space for the machinery. You had to be proud to be able to serve on that ship, and if you lost your ability to hear, because there was no protection for your... More
