This place is just fantastic, we visited it for about 1 hour. The basic ticket gives you access to the museum and also to watch a 3D movie about the navy. Great place to visit.

Great family location as it provides a wonderful opportunity to learn and appreciate the US Navy. The Nataclus really added to the experience.

Go to the visitor center on Main St and ask if they have any passes to the city tourist sites. We were given one and we didn’t have to pay for the admission to the ship
