My husband truly enjoyed this experience. We had a knowledgeable tour guide who answered all our questions. I think children, especially boys, would see and learn a lot about our past naval involvements.

Bring a camera. Whether you're a history buff or not, this is an awesome chance to view one of the remaining WW2 battleships. You can have lunch in the ship's galley and they even have overnight stays.

5 PM is the latest time that you can start your tour. Most guests complete the Fire Power Tour in 90 minutes, so most guests finish their tour by 6:30.
