Very nice museum, clean and well put together. Didn’t take us much more than an hour to walk through. Really enjoyed the large boat props that were set up, making it feel very realistic.

If this is your interest, apparently it's the best museum for civil war naval ships. I enjoyed it, but it's not top of my list.
