The tour guides at this museum are very knowledgeable and friendly. The museum contains the deck of a ship to explore. Outside the museum is an old destroyer that can be explored. It is an excellent addition to a trip to D.C., especially if you have been to DC before, and are looking for something new to see, or enjoy Naval history.
