Where do I start? Of all the places we went during our stay this was by far our favorite. From the exhibits and hands on exhibits for our grandsons 7 and 9 in the museum, along with watching the boat builders work on boats, having one talk with us about the history of the boats, building of them and answering all our questions to getting to tour the submarine BECUNA and the USS Olympia - Just WOW! Well worth the money. The staff were super nice. We all learned something that day! This was right up my son-in-law's alley! Don't miss it!
