The size of the ship is impressive, and the history is amazing. Seeing how people lived and worked was very eye-opening, and you can feel the energy. Worthwhile to take the time to visit!

Such a great experience. Loved being able to see the history. The tours were so neat being able to climb up and down the stairs. You get to see so many parts! Parking was reasonable and so was the cost. Totally recommend.

The unguided tour is so fun. I like that you can go at your own pace. I was surprised at how many tours there were and the amount of detail and information. The ship is huge. Now I cant wait to see the next aircraft...More

Not sure there’s a public elevator. If there is, you would only have access to the hanger deck and the flight deck. Below deck you’d have to go through doors, which are not wheelchair friendly
