Really interesting and fun being lucky enough to walk thru the Turner Joy when barely anyone was visiting so could really enjoy exploring it. Yes, the stairs were challenging for this sr w bad knees but I managed carefully. Highly recommend!

We had very good access to most of the ship which was very interesting to see. I am amazed and impressed with the sailors who served their country in such tight quarters!

Took a seven year old who enjoyed the inside and outside of the ship. Many spaces are accessible within the ship which made it into an exploration adventure. History displays make it very enjoyable for adults as well.

This is an amazing ship to walk through and see. The smell of the engine room, the stairs and the different levels. You can feel the history and it gives you an idea of what it was like to be on this ship. Worth checking...More

A Vietnam war era Naval Destroyer ship that has been converted into a museum. The tour is self guided. An admission ticket costs $16 for adults. If you have been stationed on a ship or have visited other Naval ships, this attraction by itself wouldn't...More

Went to tour the ship on a Saturday afternoon after driving about 45 minutes to get there. $16 to walk around an unheated cold ship. Interesting ship history but seems like for that much money per person it could be a better experience. Used a...More

Yes the kids loved scoping out the stairs, passage ways, and windy places. The especially liked climbing into the gun mount and sitting on the bridge. We’ve been on the USS Midway so this is not as well done as that. BUT this isn’t a...More

Some are depending upon the location in the ship. If they are not doing maintenance, most of the engineering spaces will probably be open.

It is my understanding that summer hours are in effect. That would mean they are open on Sundays.
