We took my children to visit and they enjoyed the tour through the ship. Very informative and well laid out. It is neat to see how it seems as if time stopped aboard ship.

A true rare find to experience exactly how the ship was when decommissioned, truly a floating museum. The tour is self guided so go at your own pace. This is a fully immersing experience. My grandfather was in the Navy in WW2 and often talked...More

Choose a day with clearish skies for the best chance of a great sunset. Walk to Ingham an hour before sunset on Fridays or Saturdays. It is $5 to board. There is a pay bar ($3-5 for drinks, including draft craft ales). There are chairs...More
