327 Foot museum ship from WWII and Viet Nam. It is a National Historic Landmark. INGHAM served our country from 1936 to 1988 and in 1985 was the most decorated ship in United States Service as noted in a letter from President Ronald Reagan in the exhibit room. It is the last American Warship afloat to have sunk a German U-Boat (626) in WWII. It served as the Flagship for the seaside operation of General MacArthur's return to Corrigedor in the Philippines. She served from 1936 to 1988.

This museum was nicely kept and clean. I especially liked the original 1988 details they kept. If you want something to offset the party atmosphere this would be a good choice/

Thought we'd take a walk and see this only to find out it's only open on the weekends. Check the hours before you go.
