  • Standing on the deck of Big Mamie is an awe-inspiring moment: I've never seen so many huge guns in one place! And just thinking of what this ship has seen and done is enough to give one goose bumps. M...  more »

  • World War 2 ended, this ship was parked and left almost entirely preserved in its wartime condition. Nearly completely accessible, only a few areas have plexiglass to preserve artifacts/critical systems. Excellent self guided tours, 4 different ones to choose from. The engine room is fascinating in size and scale.
  • Wonderful experience! Plan on several hours or a whole day. There is a lot to see. You will need to be able to go up and down ladders and steps. Also, no backpacks are allowed so just leave them in the car. This would be good for school age children and up. It would be hard to lift small children up and over doors and there are hazards for them.
  • It was amazing!!! I would recommend it to everyone! So much history here. Being able to walk through the submarine !! Up the decks of the USS Massachusetts!! You have to go and bring the family.
  • Lots of fun, great place for kids to learn and explore. I went here as a kid several times, and brought my 5 year old son today, and we had a great time!
  • My boys had an amazing time! Not too good for toddlers, I seen a few parents struggling so I'm really glad I found a sitter for my little one. It's hands on and a great way to learn. Try not to drag your purse around either if you can help it lol there's a few small spaces. Over all, we absolutely loved it!
