“Pretty Cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very interesting exhibit with lots to see. Super hot in July but there were lots of fans throughout the ship to cool off in front of. A lot of very cool information on this vessel.

“Very interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I have never done this before so it was fun. The kids found it amazing to see the inside of the boat and everything on it. There is no air so it is warm but well worth it in my opinion. To cool off you can walk right next door to the Eco-discovery center which is free!

“A real Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Today I had the honor and pleasure of touring the Ingham Martime Museum. A
moving experience and a fabulous opportunity to learn about this highly decorated ship
which played an important role in our maritime history. The staff is wonderful, knowledgable and truly dedicated. when the ship was decommissioned the crew left everything intact and it's stepping back in time. it's a self guided tour takes about 60 minutes. As we were looking at the Captains quarters the director of the Musuem stopped to chat and unlocked the door to the quarters and let us wander around inside. Very cool. Do yourself a favor and stop by. The ship is docked near the entrance to Fort Zacary Park.

“Great History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

My husband and I love history. Being in the Navy we love to look at ships turned into museums. It was extremely hot but the self guided tour was interesting in all that 50 years of active duty services that the ship did which covered several wars.

“Very cool and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The staff is excellent and let our family go on the tour after they closed. They are truly interested in everyone getting to see this ship and learn about it. It is a great experience and should be on everyone's list to visit and learn about our nation's history. This is strictly a voluntarily run experience.
