The Maritime Museum of San Diego is well worth a visit. Included are seven vessels upon which a visitor may spend time. Two of these provide regular tours of the harbor. The latter two cost a supplemental amount but are well worth it if the...More
This is a great place to spend a couple of hours touring the restored ships and submarines. The highlight for us was the Star of India, a ship launched in the mid 19th century over a hundred years ago and lovingly restored. Lots of informative...More

I'm not quite sure what you are looking for as an answer. If you are concerned about feeling claustrophobic I guess that could happen but you walk from one end to the other and, although you have to slide yourself through hatches, it doesn't feel too enclosed. Everyone is moving in the same direction so you don't feel squashed in etc.
Outside there is a mock up hatch of the same size through which you have to pass and this will give you an idea of the closeness inside, but those only allow transit from one compartment to another. Inside the compartments themselves you can stand and walk without difficulty although I wouldn't want to be much taller than my 5'10 frame to be honest!

There are a few areas that are accessible such as much of the steam ferry Berkeley (which does house a great many exhibits), however, most are actual or replica historic ships which were far from ADA compliant.
