If you want to learn about history of San Diego from the water side which includes Navy, Tuna fishing, sailing, etc. this is a must see museum. The Berkley is fascinating.

“Lots to see so plan on the whole day.”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

It was really interesting and informative. The staff were friendly especially the lovely lady on the HMS Surprise. The submarines were really cool but if you are at all claustrophobic you might not want to go in them!
