Have been on a number of museum vessels but this was our first destroyer. It took a bit over an hour to walk through, see displays and historical information. Would be neat for younger folks to experience life on the vessel.

I took my daughter here and was completely surprised by how fun it was. There were so many areas to explore. We learnt a lot about what it would have been like to be in the Navy! I recommend this tour for anyone interested in engineering. So many pumps and engines to look at. Awesome. I can't recommend it enough.

Hubby and I recently visited the ship and we had a nice time. There was some construction going on at the time so getting there was a small challenge, but we found it. We did the solo tour and there were all types of information available throughout the ship. It was cold and raining when we went, but we still had a great time. Would definitely recommend.

Took the grandkids to tour the ship--it was fascinating for them. They couldn't get to enough of the nooks and crannies climbing up on the 3 man racks in the sleeping quarters, role playing a staff meeting in the Captain's conference room, chowing down on the chocolate cake in the crews' mess, manning the gun mounts and on and on!! Spent 2 full hours here and could have stayed longer. There were a number of ex Navy men who provided excellent insights into the Turner Joy, her history and service record. Definitely worth the time and modest entrance fee.

I've toured a few museum ships since separating from the Navy years ago and, in my opinion, this is one of the best opportunities to explore a US Navy vessel. On ships like the Battleship Wisconsin or Battleship Missouri, there is just so much of the ship you don't have access to. On the USS Turner Joy you can explore almost everything! I always want to go, into the engine room. In most museum ships you can't, at least not much. The audio stations make the self guided tour easy and fun for anyone that is in to these former navy ships. I loved the tour. We went on a week day in October. It wasn't crowded and we didn't feel pushed to keep moving. We could linger around as much as we wanted. Personnel around to ask questions that were very helpful. Take the pleasant 1 hour ferry ride from Seattle to Bremerton for this cool piece of history!
