Very interesting, it was a lot of fun walking on and in the ship. You could just imagine how the soldiers lived and worked on the boat.

Sort of like the Intrepid in NYC, its a decommissioned CG vessel with galleries of Military items from the time of its tenure. Its cool if your into military memorabilia and museums, pretty quick tour and not expensive, worth seeing if you have time.

Very neat to go through. They kept exactly everything as it was, like it was frozen in time. And on Saturdays they have happy hour on the boat! It is slightly away from everything so if you're looking for something that's fun and historic and...More
