What a good experience from start to end. Amazing history and the possibility to visit this legendary ship. Parking was a bit tricky. Suggest to go early in the day, so it does not get too hot. No air conditioning. Great visit with kids.

Great for history lovers, and kids. Nice history lesson to see what our service men went through back in the day. The cutter was left as is and several items from the crew are still in their place.

If you love history, you do not want to miss this tour. What an amazing boat and the history has been preserved just as well as a time capsule of ALL its years in service. Friendly staff work here too!

A tour of this ship will give an insight to the conditions sailors had to endure while out to sea. The cramped quarters and intense heat will make you appreciate these guys more than ever
