Having small children I was concerned but it was a great day and we learned so much! It’s so amazing to be able to stand aboard something so massive with such a rich history!

I would say anyone, children to older adults would enjoy the fine history and information. It's a sight to see and the museum that is part of it, just takes your breath away.
