They really did an excellent job designing this exhibit. Its obvious that BIG bucks were spent.

I'm the only Civil War buff in my group and I expected the others to tire quickly and hurry me along. However, this exhibit so engrossed my party that we were unable to spend any time in the rest of the Mariner's Museum. They have done an outstanding job of recreating both of the famous ironclad warships, explaining their development and technology, and dramatizing the details of their historic encounter. As an added plus the story of the discovery and exploration of the wreck of the Monitor is equally captivating and many recovered relics are on display. This is a very rewarding outing for anyone, even those with only the slightest interest in our nation's history - highly recommended.

It's bigger than you think and well worth the stop. The displays really help bring civil war history to life.
