  • Volunteers provide tours of the ship that last 30-40 minutes. There is also a small gift shop and museum. The only way to go into the ship is his a tour. In 2019, tours cost $5 for adults, children 14 and under a free. The tour guides provide facts of the ship as well as a few stories. Highly recommend the tour .
