We really enjoyed our self guided tour of this ship. It is amazing the condition our WWII naval soldiers worked in.

This tour was self guided which was awesome so that we could take pictures and go at our own pace. I made the mistake of wearing a sundress...DO NOT wear anything that you can’t move around in because you are going up and down ladders...More
