Excellent museum and battleship visit. Knowledgeable people are present to answer questions. An audio device which can be scanned at multiple stations so you are totally informed during your self tour. Children are given questions to answer, and when turned in before leaving, earn a pair of wings. Loved going into some of the planes and helicopters. Was a great visit. Wish I had planned on more time.
