“An awesome experience on the ship”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The tourguides are very knowledgable, some who served on the ship itself. Everything on the ship is restored and you veel as if it were ready to pull away after the tour. Parking is nearby, or take the Riverline, visit the ship and aquarium together and park in the aquarium lot. The ship is a short walk.and simply amazing.

“Excellent Historical Site”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I have all positive comments on the historical value of the attraction. It is physically demanding so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. There are many ladders to climb. There are many options for either a self guided tour or they have many volunteers that will walk with you through to answer any question. ONE NEGATIVE: Bathrooms were disgusting. They could afford to spend some time to clean them up. Also did feel safe to eat in their food area due to lack of cleanliness
Would have given an Excellent except for how dirty the bathrooms were.

I love learning about ships, have been on quite a few of them and this one was the most exciting of them all. It was a great tour and fantastic learning about the ship and the guns.

This is a great museum. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The place is kept clean and well organized. Hot as heck in the summer, cannot imagine what the sailors had to deal with!
