A donation is expected as you enter the museum. There are many videos and exhibits that would be enjoyed by children. There are two floors to visit and a gift shop as you exit.

Ship is staffed by US Navy personnel who were very helpful and informative. The ship has been well maintained and it was great to see a piece of US history.

The museum is very well done with numerous interactive activities. It was just my wife and I, but if we had kids we could have spent a lot of time here. As it was we still ended up perusing for a couple hours. Very enjoyable...More

The US Navy operates this vessel and it is in pristine condition. The Naval enlisted men/women and officers that oversee and maintain this ship are the cream of the crop. Take time to walk the floors and imagine battle as it was then.

This was a great tour. The ship is amazing. The Navy personnel who are there really are proud of her and share lots of information. It’s free to go see it. Just have a valid photo ID.

Loved this museum. There were cannons, mock-ups, portraits of famous naval personnel, many historical documents, exhibits and other materials, all well presented. There are things for all ages, there is even a kids room to do activities. This is a well done, professionally presented museum...More

I’m sorry I haven’t seen the question sooner! I think 1 hour would be fine. There isn’t much walking involved, but there are some stairs and tight spaces on the ship itself. We had no lines to get in really, maybe 5 people... More
