History come alive. Nothing like seeing some of the marvels of human engineering and American might. Amazingly close and amazingly spectacular. Kids would enjoy. Lots to do near and around. Easy to find parking.

Took my 2 daughters to the military park kicking and screaming, they thought how boring. By the end of the tour I had to practically drag them out, thanks to the gentlemen who volunteer to man the vessels for the tours.

This is great experience for all history buffs, those who are into naval activities and anyone who wants to experience the inside of a submarine without the worry of getting seasick (haha). As you walk through the decks of the ships and explore the passageways...More

It was the first time we motorcycled across the border and wanted something to do. I spotted this Naval and Military park and was surprised by the great reviews - now I know why. Your admission ($12) covers 2 ships, the submarine and 2 museums!...More

These ships were before my time in the Navy but they sure did bring back a lot of memories. If you want to see how the navy lived in the past this is a great self guided tour.

There is one open parking area located under the interstate that I would suggest. It is a gravel/dirt lot and is $10 per vehicle, about a 5 min walk from the ships. Other lots I do not feel would be as accessible for a... More

I would suggest a minimum of two hours, less of course if you have young children with limited attention spans.
