We paid for the tickets through Groupon (even though the regular prices are still very reasonable). We had a hard time figuring out where to park, and where the entrance to the ship was. But we were amazed at the size, and the fact that it's still running for its age and original use!! Staff was helpful and friendly. Gift shop really didn't have much selection and was kind of pricey considering what they did offer, but I did decide on something I liked! Very interesting to see original artifacts from when it was in original operation. I think it would be best suited for those not in wheelchairs or that are claustrophobic, as some areas are very tight getting through or standing in, and the stairs are not accommodating to a wheelchair. Also, if you are bringing babies, be sure to maybe carry them in a reliable "wrap" as you may need your hands to steady yourself on the really steep stairs. Kids did like seeing a "pirate ship" that passed by as well. They also offer a cruise aboard this same ship once or twice a year for a fee. We really overall enjoyed our visit!
