They have a smaller museum that was nice. However, it was really neat getting to walk through the USS Silversides and the USCG clipper. For the submarine we had an ex-mariner that gave a group a tour. The tour was really informative and it was...More

This is a very impressive museum with lots and lots of history. There is quite a bit of reading, but not necessary to enjoy the exhibits. We loved the self-guided tour of the submarine and the coast guard boat where you can spend as much...More
