Our family took a tour of this museum. We had children ages 4 - 12. They all enjoyed it. The kids enjoyed playing checkers and they have uniforms the kids can try on. It is small enough to not overwhelm children but informational enough for the older. This museum is free. If you want you can tour the battleship, USS... 更多
Great Museum on the 2nd floor of the Nauticus building. The artifacts are numerous and the ship models are very amazingly detailed. The exhibits are well rounded from colonial to modern day. The display on the C.S.S Alabama is great for all ages. They also have a great free magazine.
Fascinating and there is something for everyone! All ages will get something out of this museum! We especially enjoyed seeing the display of the retrieved Monitor gun turret! You can spend an entire day inside and still not see it all! There are great films to watch and so many of the displays have great explanations of specific historic events... 更多
Smithsonian level of exhibits, covering all aspects of the area' maritime history. Complete with the battleship USS Wisconsin, one of only four Iowa Class battleships built by the US for use in WWII (she served all through Korea, Vietnam, various Mid East battles and Desert Storm). Definitely should be on your "Bucket List"

Our group enjoyed this museum. It is packed full of history and hands on exhibits. We only had about an hour and a half to tour. That is not nearly enough time. Our kids enjoyed listening to some of the exhibits and reading about the naval history. I wish we had more time here.
A concept model of the USS Maine, the Maine's flag from it's sinking, the wheel of the West Virginia, and great models of all kinds of Civil War ironclads and raiders up through modern naval ships. Loads of information to digest, and it's free! The museum is located within Nauticus but is not part of the Maritime Center itself. I... 更多
