This is a very interesting and well worth while visit to see a piece of history. Also the volunteer workers on board are very happy to explain all about the ship and the engines room etc. Very informative.

A great tour for adults and kids - nothing teaches history better to kids than hands-on fun. Next tour will be USS Hornet.

It's awesome to see this great boat. It's part of the WWII. Well conservated, just with a stroll you can get there and admire.

Look at these ships, touch history right there in the bay. Class of ships built right here during WWII and helped with the economy. Over 2000 boats were built here and only 3 left! There is a submarine on site here too.

These" liberty" ships played such a crucial part in ww2 that it's a shame not more of these exist around the country to remind people how difficult it was to transport mass amounts of people. A national landmark that should be appreciated

It's important, I believe, for everyone no matter what age to explore any of our military ships all across the country. It's in excellent condition as it's still in use but exploring it and understanding history is worth the trip.

The ship is in great condition as they actually take it out a couple of times a year. It is an interesting insight into the conditions experienced on one of these boats. It had a lot of steep ladders and boat stairs. I didn’t go...More
