“A piece of cold war history to explore.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

A fascinating view of life aboard a ship of the Tin Can Navy. My personal experiences with the Navy during that era were from an aerial perspective, i.e. as an aviator. The Turner Joy completed the circle for me as my squadron's mission often included working in concert with similar ships.

Turner Joy is a must see for visitors to Bremerton or locals. Opt for the tour guide, they add a lot to the story of the ship.

my husband and i are new to the area and since he is active duty military he had free admission. My mother was visiting and we all enjoyed viewing how navy life was aboard a real ship!

“Such an adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Bring your imagination! Great family fun for kids who can climb up and down ladders. Really makes you think of what our military has had to endure. A wonderful piece of history. I'd give it a good hour to an hour and a half if you really want to explore the ship. It's self guided. I like that part!

“Perfect tour for my son.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

While in Bremerton I took my son on a tour of the USS Turner Joy. As it was a Friday afternoon there was virtually no one else touring the ship. My son who's 9 and i had full run of the ship. He though that was amazing. while touring below deck we ran into one of the ever friendly volunteers he went out of his way to explains things to my son and i.

I highly recommend taking a tour of this historic ship.
