Fun and educational day for the boys ages 5 - 11. They loved the ship, the airplanes, the space craft and especially the submarine- the growler. There is a special exhibit on drones that added to the excitement. It's beautiful, scenic and fun. They saw...More

And you didn't even board yet. Definitely worth taking a tour and focus on your interest; Navy, Space, Aviation- even Vietnam. Must be visited multiple times to get it all in.

A walking distance from our hotel. A place to visit for anyone interested to view a real WWII aircraftcarrier.

Gave an interesting display of a 1960s submarine and a aircraft carrier. The planes were fine however there was a limited range compared to some other museums. Worth visiting to get a glimpse of the past

I love this museum. Not the largest but it's unique and has tons of planes and jets to look. Location is great for tourist by train/ taxi and I highly recommend a visit. I'd also recommend take a great walk south along Chelsea.

Great displays of the Space Shuttle and Drones. Well laid out exhibits and very informative. BUT try and avoid times that school party's are there. Hundreds of kids inside a ship!!! Noisy noisy!!!'

For a start, the inside of the ship is almost an empty space, save for some section that shows what life was like for the crew. You do get to walk around the control area and this is interesting. I guess I was expecting more...More
