Our family of 4 adults really enjoyed visiting this ship. Really was humbling going in this wonderful piece of history. I could not imagine how miserable it must have been below decks fighting a war in the South Pacific. The day we visited the outside temperature was 62 degrees. The ship has been fitted with AC and it was still very warm below and this was without 2000 sailors and the engines/equipment running.
The ladders are steep and the tour takes well over an hour depending how much you like to read. This is not a place for small children or folks not able to walk without assistance.
I would go back again when in Wilmington.
