“One of a Kind- Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

The USS Cairo is the only surviving ironclad. It was amazing to see photos of how this was raised from the river and how it has since been restored and preserved. The fact that you can actually walk inside and see the inner workings of the ship is amazing. The museum displays so many articles saved from the ship. This is definitely a must see!

“Neat piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

This was more than I expected. They've done a beautiful job preserving and presenting this ship. The fact that you can walk inside and see how things would have worked is great. Well worth the visit.

This is part of the Vicksburg Military park. It's interesting and well thought out. This is a great place to picnic if you're visiting the park.
