What do you on a rainy day during a Williamsburg vacation? Drive here and be prepared to stay all day ... because it will take you that long to properly view this marvelous place! For the astronomical price of $1.... yes, one dollar!... you’ll enjoy yourself immensely and learn more than you thought possible in one day. The history of the sea comes alive. Go!

Hampton Roads is known for its access to many shores. The Mariners Museum is a great way to explore the aquatic siude of Hampton Roads. Not only pleasant and inspiring, byut educational to young & old alike.

This is a nice well maintained museum with a dollar admission! Ironclad / Monitor Center is the place to go to learn about this important battle. Whole separate area full of different examples of water craft.The price makes it possible to visit multiple times, and dedicate time to wherever you want! Noland trail is near here, and large parking area is useful for this.

there are lots of maritime museums, but this is one of the best we've visited. The exhibits are well thought out, the ships fun to walk thru, just a fun place for all ages. The turret of Old Ironsides is there! It is still underwater because of its delicate condition, but mockups and films tell the complete story.
An added attraction, the catamarans of the America's races! I wasn't too excited to go to that part of the museum, and it was amazing. The film and the different exhibits were a real treat. We went back a second day!
We have never been to a museum that only charged $1.00. Serendipity!
