“perfect for history buffs and boys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

This was always a favorite destination for my sons. You can climb through the battleship and other ships as well. Some spaces have been set up as if crew were living there. You certainly get a sense of how cramped living space is.

“Fantastic”

If you love military history and naval history, you should check out this collection of warships. You will not be disappointed, maybe tired though as you walk the decks.
