“A unique place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I've seen tons of military stuff but this ship is pretty unique. It's huge inside and exploring the engine room stuff is super cool. Highly recommend.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

I'm a big fan of planes, trains, automobiles and ships and this place was great. Fantastic value ($12), loved the self guided tour and the adventure of exploring this ship. I spent around 2 hours looking around, including watching the documentary in the cargo hold which was really interesting. Don't miss the engine room.

“A well maintained piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We visited on a rainy Monday morning right after touring the adjacent USS Pampanito Submarine. The Jeremiah O'Brien has been restored with love and is well worth a visit. We bought a $25 family pass and it was well worth it. You are allowed to climb all over the ship, from the top right down to the engine room at the bottom of the ship. There are docents present to answer any questions that you have, and add a bit of history to your visit. We spent about 1.5 hours on the ship and I don't think we missed anything. The ship actually sails twice a year with passengers, and we would love to return to go on one of these trips.

“My husband loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Fun and different, my husband really got a kick out of seeing the ship, crews quarters and big guns. I enjoyed the great sights of the city and bay from the deck. Great for boys of all ages

“Great historical significance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

My family took a tour of this ship on July 3, 2014 and it cost $25 and it was well worth it. It took us an hour and a half to tour the whole ship. Very fascinating!
