  • Amazing step back in time. Great history! It is air conditioned but remember this is an old ship. Hard to cool. They have fans also. Highly recommend. Bonus on Thursdays is farmers market!!!
  • One of the better museum ships I've been on. The ship has not been picked over like most museum ships have so you get to see far more of the inner workings than you usually do.
