Go earlier in the day so it's not so hot. Great place for kids! So much to see and learn! Really gives you the feeling that those men had in WWII and living on the ship. Great education for all!

I'm not sure if strollers were allowed, but I would wait til he's old enough to walk on his own. There are a lot of steep narrow stairs.
