We really enjoyed our tour of the battleship! We spent about two hours onboard. We parked in $10 parking near the aquarium and walked along the riverfront to get here. We learned SO MUCH about the battleship and enjoyed the self guided tour (we didn't...More

I did use the wand and did not mind taking it back to the ticket building. One reason for returning wands to the ticket counter is they need to keep any deposit IDs safe behind the counter.
