  • I have never enjoyed a tour of anything as much in my life. Bob, our guide, was very knowledgeable and a true gentleman. The USS Cassin Young is a time capsule and will transport you back to the 1940s and 1950s. I feel privileged to have had the chance to see around a vessel that represents so much of a great nation. It is almost sacred. I would recommend a visit.
  • One of the best presented monument ships I have visited, the volunteers who help maintain vessel's condition have done an excellent job. Without taking the free guided tour you are limited to the main deck which due to design limiting since much of the functions of the ship are above main deck and below. The tour was informative and covered much of the areas mentioned that showed most of the sleeping spaces, office spaces, gallery, and bridges (actual and lookout area) but not engineering spaces for no explanation (maybe not remodeled or made safe for tours) I like seeing how the ship was able to travel, provide power, and perform the function designed for. Maybe in the future add to the tour or make all areas available for both self and guided tours. Ship is best example of a ship-based museum I have visited to date with the thanks going to the volunteers pride in maintaining the ship.
