Lots of history and fun interactive activities for kids. My children liked trying to make the knots with the ship ropes. Nice little gift shop and clean rest rooms!

My second visit, great museum chocked with artifacts and history. If you're lucky one of the volunteer docents will be available to give more history. Loved the periscope! Nice bathrooms and A/C if your shopping downtown and need a break.
