The place was a bit pricey but the kids had alot of fun climbing thru all the ships and learning what it was like back in the days of war. We made a great day of the ships and would recommend it.

Depends on your party size and make up. If you are really into history you can easily spend all day there, since there are detailed exhibits all over the place. If you have any children under 12, you may spend a lot of time... More

Yes we did it is on a large video screen and you overlook water as you watch it. It explodes in the water and shows the attack and a lot of narration. It last about 15 minutes. Historical.
