  • Recommend the attraction, it's worth it. Not recommended for elderly with some difficulty of locomotion, as it has tight passages and many stairs. You have free access to the interior of the ship passing by all internal and external structure with objects and history of the ship and its crew. Worth

  • Took my 4 and a half year old son on the 76th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. He had so much fun exploring and climbing all throughout the many shops on display. I visited as a kid with Boy Scouts and we stayed on board the ship and it is dry much the way I remember it. They have done an excellent job maintaining it. Really a cool day trip and totally worth it to check out.
  • This is an absolutely wonderful place to be plan on spending the whole day It may be a little overwhelming for very young small children being sort of a repetition kind of thing. Boy Scout Troops are permitted to stay over there on weekends for sleepovers. In my opinion it's a five-star destination a battleship and Destroyer submarine, aircraft, PT boats.
  • The big surprise pleasure of our New England visit. Our wives were very much impressed with the presentation of the exhibits and the very human core of the information. We enjoyed the full visit during a very wet day. It was a very emotional visit as well as historically interesting.
  • This ship is a marvel of engineering that we are lucky to have here in New England. It's a really fun self guided tour.
  • I had a lot of fun in this place! If it wasn't for the rain I would have stayed a little bit longer. There are a lot of historical information all around, and there are chutes that you can access and view how the room, the galley, the captain's headquarters, the engineer room, and etc. There is also a gift shop outside where you could buy hats sweaters and other stuff.
