Locals have done a marvelous job of putting together a naval museum on the naval ship and submarine. But, keep in mind these are the real "mckoy" and require good climbing ability on steep ladders to the various decks and the ability to maneuver in tight spaces and in and out of submarine hatches to get around. I say this... More

Visited with my 4 year old and almost 2 year old. My 4 year old was very interested in touring the ships. We went during the week and it was not very busy. Just touring the 2 ships took almost two hours. There was a lot to see and read about. If traveling with young children it would be impossible... More

We only got to see The Sullivans ship before it poured. Very pleasantly surprised at how many areas you could tour. Nicely preserved and lots of explore. Money well spent for sure. Great for all ages over 4. Not the greatest with babies or toddlers (steep stairs)

My husband and I took advantage of a free tour of the naval park on some random day last summer (fall?). It was something we wouldn't have necessarily gone to if it weren't free, but now that we know what it is, we would be more than willing to pay the price of admission! Nice setup, although I would suggest... More

Money well spent. Self guided tour aboard USS Little Rock, USS The Sullivan's and the submarine, Crocker. Lots of construction so was a little tricky navigating to the waterfront but def worth the trip.

A hands-on self-guided tour of a destroyer, a cruiser and a submarine -- a great history lesson and tribute to US Navy

You can spend as much time you wish to do so. We spent several hours. Loved the self guided tour. It is sobering, makes you appreciate the men who spent months or years in those tight spaces in the vast oceans fighting for our country. Great visuals, artifacts in perfect condition! Lots of stairs to climb, but it is safe,... More

This park has a museum that contains 2 ships and 1 submarine from the second world war. The exhibits also include other military equipment and personal exhibits about various conflicts since WW2. A worthwhile place to visit to help maintain this legacy and history as it is all volunteers who run it.
