This tour was amazing. It's self-guided, so you are able to take as much time as you want. I'd allow for an hour, minimum. When this ship was decommissioned, everything was left on board. That means you get to tour this cutter exactly as it...More

This is a self-guided, go at your own pace tour & yet the volunteers on staff are full of interesting tidbits of information as well. Everything has been left just as it was when the ship was decommissioned so it is a great history lesson....More

We kind of stumbled onto this place while riding bikes. We’ve always seen it parked there but never knew it was a museum. This ship is unbelievable inside. Everything is still in place from the day they retired it. It is very informative and very...More

This is another KW must see site. The ship was not stripped down when decommissioned which means everything is still on board and in tact. The guys are very knowledgeable and are really into the details. I don't want to give away the things that...More
