Fantastic trip! I grew up visiting this battleship as a kid and have had the opportunity for my child to visit. She loved it!

You get to climb all over the ship and even sit behind a gunnery. Some places you have to climb down stairs to get to another level. If that is a problem, there is still much to see on top. The facility has picnic tables for lunch and a gift shop.

Don't miss this one.
