An amazing extensive museum that is only $1 to get into. Even if you aren't into boats or marine history this is a great way to get out of the heat and explore all the rooms. From 2 huge rooms filled with models to active restoration of the USS Monitor! I cant want to go back again and discovered everything I missed the first time.. My 13 year old even still talks about the visit.

This is the best info I've seen on the Monitor. Artifacts help to make it more "real". Very well done. Part a a great little museum, with a nice $1 admission fee!

This is the most comprehensive and interesting exhibits. It's clear that no expense was spared in this wing. There are so many recreations! Superlative!

One portion of the Maritime museum and entry to the entire museum for $1.00. A short drive (30 min) from WIlliamsburg and a great option for any poor weather during your vacation. Contains the actual Monitor as well as reconstructions of the Monitor and Merrimac and history of the sea campaigns of the Civil War.
