Went as family. Spent biggest part of day there. Grandkids 10,8,7 thought it was interesting also. Fascinating how some of the things from back then are still being used today. A lot of stairs and walking.

This takes you back to the time that the ship was in service. The self guided tour was well thought out. There are signs everywhere, with lots of information.
