We enjoy touring the battleship, especially my husband and son. The summertime it can be quite hot and humid though. Lots of stairs if you do below deck. It's really neat to be standing by the old cannons and levels of this type of ship!

So fun for all ages! A very cool trip down a forgotten era. Take your family and take your kids. Just note it is HOT in the summer and not stroller friendly.

I do recall seeing a restroom on the actual ship. I did not go into the facility, but it appeared to be small. I have two small children so I walked back to the gift shop area to use those restrooms (which were larger). The... More
