  • Good place to kill able two hours
  • Completely unsafe for kids 6 and under. I was shorter then the railing and could've fallen right into the Hudson river. Still fun experience though.
  • 100% worth the price of admission. Most accurate depiction of a WWII Era ship anywhere in the country. Tour took about an hour and a half and was very hands on. Highly recommended.
  • Nice step back in history to see how life was for sailors back in that time. Amazing how well this group did to restore the ship with limited funds. It's a nice tour that you can take in a short period of time.
  • There maybe more famous WWII ships to tour but you'll not likely find one with more attention to the details of fighting and living on a ship in a historical setting. The Slater has been lovingly restored with countless artifacts turning it into a time machine. The staff is friendly and our guide had assimilated many stories from sailors who served on these ships. Even members of my family not usually interested in history were captivated by the story. Attention WWII buffs...you cannot find these kinds of details in books.
