I visited here with my family and we all had a great time (kids range 4 to 10). The carrier is by far the best part. We spend over half a day touring the Yorktown. The kids had a blast. There was so much of the ship to see plus neat planes on exhibit and even one the kids could climb into. There was also the Apollo 8 experience which was super fun. The Laffey destroyed was also very interesting and humbling. It is amazing to see the sacrifices made by the young men on board the Yorktown and the Laffey. All I can say is wow and I can say I don't see how you can walk away without a sincere feeling of gratitude for what these young men did for our country. The submarine was neat to go through as well and gave a interesting perspective of what close quarters these sailors had to endure. The outside is in a bit of decay but the inside is preserved pretty well. If you're in Charleston I'd highly recommend paying a visit to this place!
