I could write a detailed description of the tour, but all I really need to say is that this ship was on the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944. An honor to be able to walk thru a bit of history.

My boys (16 and 12) both love history---and boats! The tour was interesting and informative. It was very warm inside the ship and on deck on a 85 degree day. Take a cold water with you! We really enjoyed the visit.
