we took our grandchildren on the ship they simply loved it. So fascinating. It was like going back in the past. Good educational day but a lot of fun.

We have a first grader and he loves visiting both the battleship and the museum. We always try to catch the 3-D movie about the aircraft carrier. We visit at least once a month and love it!

This was a good battle ship but not really any different than the others you can tour. It does have a neat history and the kids enjoy going into the different compartments.
