This ship has done it all. From saving lives to providing artillery support in Vietnam, this ship has literally done every mission in Maritime service and was the most highly decorated vessel in the Fleet. This is a Must See in Key West!!

We found this exhibit by accident, just driving around the island. It is well worth visiting. We should support our military, both past and present.

This was a big group outing. We enjoyed the tour of the ship, learning a lot of history. Feeling grateful for all that have served. We stayed to watch Sunset from the ship, very emotional.

Went to Key West just to visit this ship. This was a bucket list trip for my father who was stationed on this ship in the late sixties. The staff were great, and really appreciated a former crew member coming aboard.
